Wordless Wednesday~ {Waiting for daddy}

**Happy 4th of July sweet friends**
Wishing you all a fun day w/ family & friends!
We're gearing up for our annual neighborhood 4th block party.
One of the many wonderful things about living in a small town, in an even smaller neighborhood...
we know all our neighbors & actually like each other!
We all chip in for steaks, burgers & dogs, & bring a side dish.
When it gets dark we all line our lawn chairs in a big circle & put on our own lil firework extravaganza !!
Doesn't get more American than that.
Pretty cool!
I am definitely looking forward to seeing Jaxy's face light up taking in all  the fireworks & sparklers.
AND Super duper excited to put my new tripod to good use & try for some firework shots!!
Now for one cute little monkey waiting for daddy to get home from work last night.
If you can tell... he kinda loves his daddy. A LOT.
(I love this sunset bokeh)

It's a real pleasure looking at your photos - in this series I'd have to say I particularly love your first and last photo out of all these sweet pictures.

Aw, such sweet pics. I especially love the silhouettes! Sounds like a perfect neighborhood to grow up in. It reminds me of the one I lived in as a kid. 4th of July was my favorite holiday for that reason.

I like our neighbors now, but we don't have anything close to that kind of community. I truly miss it. Treasure it and enjoy your day!!

These photos are STUNNING. So beautiful. I love the light and the fact that Jax is so clueless that he's being snapped. Just perfect.
I hope you had a great July 4th, it sounds like you had really fun stuff planned. X

Yes, oh my goodness these are amazing! I love the lighting in these. Fantastic. Sounds like you all had a great 4th. It's a great thing when you like your neighbors and get together.

These are so great, I LOVE that last one, the way he is standing says so much haha! I'm kinda jealous of your block party! Hope you had a great time and can't wait to see the pics!
