4th of July: The Pregnant Patriot

Waiting on our new little American Girl!

Showing Sofia Vergara a thing or two about a woman with curves!

This year was one of the best 4th of July holidays we’ve ever had. The weather was actually pretty cool so we went over to a friend’s house to swim, eat, drink (lemonade) and hang out by the pool.

Might as well flaunt it at this point!

 This was Avery’s first time on a raft or “bed” as she called it and once we got her on she just wanted to relax and float around all afternoon!


After naptime we headed over to Leawood. We ate at Mestizo (the skirt steak tacos are not to be missed!) and then hung out in the commons area in Park Place where they had a cover band playing everything from Duncan Sheik to Eagle Eye Cherry. It was kind of random compared to your usual hot dogs and Lee Greenwood, but eating Mexican food and listening to 90s music is pretty much the dream for me so I was happy as could be. If only they would have played a little Everclear it would have really made my night. There were lots of kiddos running around so Avery had fun splashing in the fountain and watching the balloon artist. They had a craft table for kids and various other giveaways but it wasn’t loud or crowded which made for a pleasant experience for this 9 month pregnant lady and our toddler. We didn’t stay for fireworks, but we still had a perfect Independence Day of family fun, celebrating America!


Hearing from you always makes my day:
