4th Of July

Dear Carter,

We tried to make the best of the Fourth Of July since you weren't here to celebrate with us. This one was the hardest holiday for me yet, and I think it's because last year it was your first holiday home with us. We started off with the Clearfield City 5k which was all for you baby boy! Everyone ran and walked hard for you little man!

Afterward we went to the Clearfield Parade. Your poor big sister wasn't feeling too well, but she still put on a good attitude and enjoyed scooping up the candy.

When we got home, it was time to prepare for the BBQ. Mikey enjoyed the swimming pool, while Jovie took a nap. We had a bunch of our friends and family over. Daddy used his new smoker and made us all some amazing food. It was by far the tastiest BBQ we've ever had. Then it was time for fireworks. Jovie still wasn't feeling too good, so she came out and layed on her blanket during the show. Daddy lit a few in honor of you, and we knew that you could see them.
On Sunday, we lit a few more fireworks. Luckily, Jovie was feeling much better and enjoyed the fireworks.We called it an early night because we had to get up early to leave for our vacation to Montana the next morning.
Still missing you with every fiber of my being!

It looks like you guys had a fun Fourth! I just know that Carter was watching all the fireworks with you. He had the best seat in the house!

I can't imagine how hard any holiday is without your boy. I'm glad that you were able to have some fun on the 4th with Jovie and Mikey. They are adorable!
