Happy 4th of July!

This year we celebrated our independence day with a mixture of tradition, family, friends and fireworks!

We woke early and ventured to downtown Waynesville for the Stars & Stripes Celebration. We do this every year and we enjoy visiting the shops and ending the day with that perfect Whitman's cupcake!

We also learned that our little princess does not like icing... just like her Daddy! She tore the upper portion of her cupcake off and only ate the cake portion.

After our trip downtown & a nice nap we were ready for our cookout that we hosted at our house. We had several guests including our friends Aaron & Rachel; and Bruce, Amy and Summer. Addison and Summer had a blast on the new swing set and my hubby did a fantastic job on our steaks!

After dinner we went to watch the fireworks at Lake Junaluska. It was a beautiful display & Addie did great until the end!

All in all we enjoyed our independence day with a lot of fun and the fellowship of family & friends!
