Fourth of July ♥

The 4th was spent with my in-laws at their campsite. I love any time I get to spend with them. Maybe because I'm convinced that Sean and I have the cutest nieces and nephews known to man. I'm not even bias, it's a fact ;).

You will see just how obsessed I am.

We had a great time! We ate, relaxed at the beach, played with Izabella who swam like a pro and ate some more.

I made the American flag cake which was a huge hit! Thanks Carolyn! There was nothing left when it was time for us to leave. It seriously was the easiest cake I've ever made and now I'll be sure to make it every Memorial Day weekend and July 4th weekend.

Alright, more pictures! I figure that the more pictures I take, the more practice I get. At least that is what I'm telling myself. I have a feeling Sean is going to drown my camera though.
