Hope you all had a good week-end! We were able to spend the 4th. with some special friends of ours and we had a great time. The weather in the North East is absolutely beautiful and we were rain free....FINALLY!

One of our friends lives in a town that celebrates the 4th. of July by gathering together to form their own parade....dressed in R W & B....singing patriotic songs along with musical instruments and flags. It was really nice and we had a great time! We marched along the canal...beautiful!
At the end of the parade, we gathered at the pavilion for a cook-out.

I like how this picture fell in place with the flag as the background.

My 2 Blessings....
Ella always points out to me that she is my Chinese AND American Princess. She is 100% correct!!


BaBa with his little girls....

Let's hear it for the Mommies!





At the end of the day, we were invited to watch fireworks with our friends at their home. I think it helped Ella to have a friend to watch with. A great ending to a wonderful day!
