Happy Fourth of July! I generally like candid pictures best, but for holidays I sometimes do plan out a little card and try to get Little Smith to play along. He is a pretty good sport.. and really darn cute.
Of course what you don't see is that it was really hot out when I made him put on this sweater (which is also too snug). I really don't like to torture the kid with outfits but I couldn't resist... at first he was not happy and I thought we were going to have to throw in the towel...
... but once we ditched the chair and brought out the piano things perked up. I think he was just correcting my styling. He was so right, much better this way. :)
We are off to enjoy an extra long week-end in New York with family. I am hoping for lots of good hugs and chats, tasty food, floating in the pool (there's a pool!), and of course fireworks!
I love the Fourth of July because it's all the fun of a holiday without any of the pressure. Plus I'm a sucker for a sparkler. Hope y'all have a great celebration!
