So Evan decided to celebrate the birth of our country by falling asleep on me three times : ) Once in the morning:

Once before dinner:

And again after dinner!

We ended up having a cookout with Nick’s mom, dad, and brother, as well as Amy’s friend Anna. It was so relaxing to just hang out in their backyard. We haven’t seen Kim, Rick, Justin, or Anna for 3 years so it was great to catch up with them! Couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend the fourth of July:


And of course Evan was ready for the sunshine!

Rick even taught him the name of the different flowers in the back yard:

When we put Evan down for bed everyone wanted to watch him on the baby monitor (it’s really cool, now you can have a camera and watch the baby as he sleeps). So, Nick decided to project the baby monitor onto the TV screen so we could watch Evan sleep in HD and surround sound lol!

We ended this glorious California evening with a bonfire:

Happy Fourth of July!
