We had a pretty low key 4th, but it was still fun. It has been raining non-stop here which cut into our plans a little. I had really wanted to go swimming but that will have to wait until the rain eventually decides to leave us alone (supposedly next week). Luckily the rain was taking a break by dark just in time for the fireworks, so we went outside and watched a few with Ella before tucking her in. We let her stay up late to wait for them and she kept going to the window and then coming back to report, "It's not dark yet." and then a few minutes later, "Not yet." etc.

There were no great shots of the girls - this is the closest we got to them both looking at the camera together.
Ella and Hope ready to eat - an all American classic of course, fried chicken!
