We had originally planned to be in Yahk with my family for 4th of July. This summer kind of hurts. I hate being separated. It's been really hard to accept. We had a really lovely 4th of July despite the change in plans. We decorated bikes with neighbors and then had a little parade around the local park. We played some fun games. I took a nap ;) The girls decorated a very pinterest worthy (HA) flag cake. Oh gosh, it was comical and that cake is going to be remembered for all time. They were a little choked it didn't turn out exactly how they wanted it, but I don't know that I could love it more. We ate dinner and played with friends and then I took Holly and Greta to see the fireworks while Conor took care of the littles. I'm really grateful we were able to have a good day.

We went strawberry picking together as a family. I'm still adjusting to wearing masks and social distancing. It feels so strange. But, we sure were glad to go to Greenbluff and pick some super yummy strawberries. They were so plump this year. My older two were so helpful and did a great job picking. I think Maeve ate strawberries the whole time except for when she was tossing a green one into the lot. Sounds age appropriate!

We bought some ice cream cones once we had gathered our haul. All in all, it was a really nice day.

We recently had a really fun day that was full of water play! First we went to Fish Lake. Holly caught a fish in her net! That was so exciting. We left Fish Lake around lunch time, just when it was starting to get busier. We ate lunch and then put on the sprinkler. And then when Conor was done work, we swam in our friend's pool. It was pretty awesome day! My goal was to tire everyone out, but I think I was the most tired at the end of it all.

S'mores as the sun sets. It doesn't get better than this!

The kiddos all had so much fun playing together on the dock. I have so many fond memories of playing in the water as a child and so it's really fun for me to see my darlings also make water memories.
