Last year we spent the 4th on the beach - Liam's first trip to the ocean and surrounded by family. Hard to beat that, but this year we were surrounded by some friends and some of Liam's baby-friends, too. Just spending time together as a family and soaking up Liam time is always the best thing. Especially since the next morning Liam went to stay with Mimi & Papa (vacation for him!) and Greg and I hit the road with friends up north to Minnesota for a good friend's wedding (more on that loveliness later).
