4th of July, letter to Riley

Dear Riley,

I have an overwhelming desire to tell you about our 4th of July this year.

Starting out, we went to “Sparks in the Park” in Brownsboro. I was expecting fireworks, hence the name “Sparks”, but was a bit disappointed when I found out there were no fireworks. Instead, there was food, friends and a live band. You love music just like your Daddy, so you were entertained the entire time we were there.

On 4th of July, we went to church with Aunt Morgan and Braxton and then came home and ate.

BHe’s a sweet guy!

RAnd you are a sweet girl!

cousins Sweet!

After everyone had a nap, we went to watch fireworks. You were both really interested at first, but then you sort of got bored. Hopefully next year ya’ll can use sparklers!

You are so wonderful and everything I imagined you would be, plus more.

Love you so much,
