Happy 4th and Happy 2nd!

The weekend’s festivities for us were not only a celebration of America’s Independence (it’s not a particularly meaningful holiday anyway for a girl who has willingly reinstated her dependence on the Brits), but also of little Miss Beatrix’s independence from my body two years ago.  (Although her birthday isn’t until Tuesday, it is, I think, worth reminding you that I was *already in labor* with her on the 4th of July, three days before her arrival!)

I’m always up for having a birthday party taken off my plate, so when my mom offered to combine Bea’s party with a 4th of July BBQ and her house, I didn’t have to think too hard about it.

The result was a fabulous day filled with laughter and loved ones, and a very tired little birthday girl at the end of it all.
