4th of July

We had a wonderful 4th of July weekend. We went to Connecticut, where I slept a LOT. It was such a treat to spend time with Alex, Brynna, and other friends and family! 

Here's Brynna in her summer clothes (there hasn't been much call for that recently with all the rain), showing off her standing skills:

On Friday night we went to a fantastic party on the CT shore. There was a very cool pizza truck with a wood-fired oven built right in:

There is nothing like New Haven pizza. Nothing. Here's Brynna getting her first introduction:

(She enjoyed the gelato afterward, too.)

Here's Brynna showing off her pretty Independence Day dress and chatting with Alyssa, hostess extraordinaire:

We considered it a celebration of Brynna's 11 month birthday, too:

And then there were fireworks, though they were far enough away so that there wasn't much noise and Brynna could just enjoy the lights.

The next day, the weather continued to hold, and we had a wonderful picnic with family and friends, including our annual reading of the Declaration of Independence. Alex and I took Brynna swimming, too, which she loves! I stole this photo from my dad's blog:

Ahhh. It was so lovely to just relax for a couple of days.
