Hey guys, Happy Monday! I was literally SO excited when I got these photos back. How cute is my patriotic family?? Isla and Dash’s bandanas kill me! The Fourth of July holds some of my nearest and dearest memories from my childhood. My mom always tried to make it special and taught me and my sisters how to be a proud, patriotic American and to honor those who sacrifice so much for this great country that I am blessed to call home.
Now that I’m a mom I want to make sure Isla and Jackson have fond memories of this holiday too! I’ve always wanted a big flag to hang on my home and this year I finally got one! I found it at Colonial Flag (right off 1o6oo south for those of you who live in UT).
Before the Stadium of Fire on Saturday night I made the family take some pictures of our coordinating outfits (Drew was annoyed) but they turned out so cute!! My s’more dessert was a hit and Isla was completely terrified of the fireworks show. She literally had her face pressed up against mine and was holding on to me for dear life. I secretly loved all the snuggles I was getting though!
What are you all doing for your Fourth of July festivities??
For those of you who asked, here’s my s’more dessert and a few photos from my IG story:
Spray 9×13 pan with pam (or melted butter).
Line entire bottom of pan with Graham Crackers.
Line Marshmallows over of the Graham Crackers (I cut my mallows in half. Load them on there!!)
Line Chocolate Bars over Marshmallows.
Line Graham crackers over Chocolate.
Finally, line Marshmallows over Graham Crackers.
Put in oven on 350 for 10-15 min or until golden brown (watch them close).
**The more marshmallows your put on the more gooey it will it be! I wish I would have added a little more to mine!
