Happy 4th of July

Last year little Livie was just about 2 weeks old when 4th of July came.
This year, she's a little over 1 years old and a blast to have as a new member to our family!
Grandma Joyce and Auntie Karen got her the cutest little 4th Of July outfit! We bbq'd and relaxed most of the day. Tod and Aiko are still outside playing Guitar Hero!
Due to the major fires in Ca. and here in Watsonville, they have canceled the sale of fire works. Tod is bumbed beyond words but we all know it's just so not worth it. Two weeks ago it took Tod and I each 3 hours to get home because of the HUGE fire just 3 miles away from our home and a mile from his grandma's home. She was evacuated and came to Tod's moms home, which is around the corner from us/ It was heart breaking to worry about his grandma's home all night. The next day the announced she could go back home, her home was safe! Amen, good is wonderful.
Unfortunately, there were homes lost in the fire as well as live stock.
So this year, we just chilled.
I got Livie in her bath and she had a great time, Aiko and Tod peaking in on her through our bathroom window and making her laugh! Then off to bed! Around 9:00 Aiko came in the house with a bin full of strawberries from our next door neighbors! How yyummy and sweet of them to do that! They look gorgeous and TASTE WONDERFULLLLLLL! Tomorrow Aiko and I are gonna cover some of them in chocolate and white chocolate! (Kay, my mouth is watering now!)
A few pics from today and tonight!
