Summertime in the “D”!

Say cheese! Or not. :)

I spent the 4th of July with my sister and niece in Dallas, TX and we had a great time! We didn’t do much, but that was the plan. It was enough for us to spend some real quality time together and for the girls to continue to get acquainted with one another. Not to mention, the weather was 100 degrees every day! It’s hot as Hades in the D.

I was worried earlier this year about flying with CC for the first time, but I’m so pleased to report that she did just fine (just as all of her cyber aunties said she would)! She slept an hour each way (2:40 minute flight), ate her snacks, and pushed the buttons on the tv until her heart was content. Call it beginner’s luck, but there were no blowouts or tantrums on either flight! She was a little cranky on the way home, but we left at the crack of dawn, so that’s to be expected. I’m so proud of her!

Here’s a quick photo summary:


How did you spend your fourth of July?


  • Those girls look so much alike! Looks like an awesome trip.
