Rosemary's 1st Fourth of July

Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July!

Rosemary's first was wonderful!

We headed over to my in laws early afternoon and enjoyed a day hanging out on the water, barbecuing, and relaxing with family.

J's parents, my parents, and all my siblings were there as well. It was such a lovely way to spend the Holiday!

I took a lot of photos with my new camera, but I haven't really learned enough about it yet to figure out how to get good fireworks shots. I got a TON of Rosemary of course.

She's the best subject anyways. :)

Filling up on yummy water. Rosemary much prefers everyone else's bottles to her own sippy cup - of course.

Of course most of it ends up down her chin and on her shirt.

The weather was beautiful, but a tad hot. We made poor Lucy get in the water periodically even though she makes it known she is NOT a water dog.

After Rosemary went to bed we went out on the lake for the night. Here's J enjoying a beer in the water.

J's parents lake have a really nice fireworks show and after some cruising around the lake with my family we got to see a really nice display.

This was our are only chance to see fireworks this year as we didn't want to actaully take Rosemary to see them. She goes to bed pretty early and with them starting so late we didn't think it would be a good idea to purposely keep her up late for them.
