Ellie was two at the time, and didn't quite know what to make of this little ball of energy.
Here is Lucy at three. She does not like to sit for a photograph.
More relaxed in the great room.
Obviously, the biggest celebration today is the celebration of our country's independence. We have always flown an American flag at our house. Our current flag makes my husband smile every time he looks at it.
Whatever you may do to celebrate the 4th, I hope you have a safe and happy one.
