Independence Day

Updating post for AJ: This is the second year in a row that AJ has been out of the country during the Fourth of July. It's a little sad for me to think about because he completes my holidays and every day, really. But I'm glad to know he's probably enjoying a nice little Cambodian-made burger somewhere awesome. 

Our family didn't have a whole ton of plans this year as I had to get up and work the next day (on a Friday...lame, but I guess that's the real world). So, we did some pretty American things:

Ate classic In N Out burgers and fries for lunch

Shopped for baby at IKEA.
Had a bbq with steak, corn on the cob, and mango...only the good stuff :)
Watched fireworks surrounding our house at night. So pretty!

Holly had some successful ones :)

Not super American, but I hit 28 weeks - 7 months!! Mega awesome!

We had a lovely Fourth. Hopefully next summer will see more AJ in America. Nonetheless, I'm very proud to be an American and have such essential rights granted and protected for me by this amazing country. I'm thankful for the men and women who are out there fighting for me. I'm grateful for caring people who are out there making things happen for the rest of us. I'm thankful that because of the reasons above and more, I can make something out of myself despite my humble roots and provide new opportunities for my posterity as well. Thank you, America!
