living in boston...any and all time i get with my family is super-de-duper special. so the 4th of july this year was pretty amazing as i got to see soooo many wonderful people that i am lucky enough to call my family.
my grandparents all completely spoiled me! plus, i got to see some of my great-grandparents, and play with lots of cousins & aunts/uncles...pretty perfect if you ask me!
i also got to go down a slip-n-slide for the first time...and if you are wondering if i liked it i will just say that every single time i went down it i yelled 'this is so fun!' at the end. the only thing i didn't like was getting grass (even a single blade) on myself or my raft...so i kept uncle jojo very busy cleaning me off in between every run. c'mon though...when you are a precision slip-n-slider like myself even a few blades of grass can throw off your run and make you lose precious seconds! i just couldn't chance it.
i also got to fly in my very own plane seat for the first time. everyone kept talking about how exciting it would be to have my own seat...but they were wrong. the exciting part was having my own seat BELT! for some reason nobody was grasping that this is what would be my favorite part (no idea why?!?).
thanks to everyone for such a super great weekend, and i can't wait to see you all again!
lots of love.
