We were blessed with a wonderful 4th! We kicked off the festivities the day before with lots of baking. Shayla had been asking to bake cupcake and cookies, so the third was the perfect day to do just that. I loved when I was a little girl and my Mamaw would be baking all day before a holiday. I would run in and out of the house smelling the sweet smells and joyfully "helping", mostly by licking the bowl:) I cherish baking and having my kids help, it brings back sweet childhood memories and makes the holiday extra special.
By far the kids favorite were the cupcakes they decorated.
My favorite was the sour cream pound cake with berries and whip cream!
We enjoyed a fulfilled day in the Palisades watching the Parade. Then we headed to the park to spend time with friends, we finished with tasty BBQ steaks for dinner!
Another wonderful day filled with sweet family memories!
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery
