We went down to Casey's sister's house for the 4th of July this year and the girls had tons of fun, especially Natalie. She doesn't have any playmates her age around here, so I just love it when we see her cousins and she has so much fun with them. It was really hot, but there was plenty of water to play in so that helped ;) The kids played with poppers and sparklers, which make me a nervous wreck, but nobody set anyone else on fire, so that is good. Natalie kept her sparkler and calls it her "wand". Silly girl.
Way down at the end, there's a picture of my tiger lily! The first one to bloom, but there are several more ready to go and they are so beautiful! I'm going to spend some time working on a quilt this week that I've had cut out for a few months now. It will be my first non-wonky quilt from an actual pattern, so we'll see how it goes!
