Happy 4th of July!

Today is Anders' FIRST 4th of July!  
We are headed over to our neighbors house for a party and plan to watch the fireworks from their screened-in back porch.  Our neighborhood sets off fireworks, and then we also have a great view of fireworks from somewhere else (maybe Old Hickory Lake?).  Anyways, I thought it would be SO cute to take Anders' picture with the American flag and noticed my neighbors next door had small flags in their yard.  So this evening I went outside to "borrow" one of their flags (at Pat & Lloyd's) but their sprinklers were on and I didn't want to get wet.  I looked to the house on the other side of me and saw two big, beautiful flags (at Mike & Steve's) -- and thought PERFECT!  I knocked on their door to ask permission to take one of their flags for a photo shoot, but no one answered so I just took it.  I set Anders down in the grass and was pushing the flag into the ground and SNAP, I broke the flag in half!  I guess that is what I get for stealing!  So I ended up getting a wet, smaller flag from Lloyd.   All that effort and sacrificing a flag for these pictures (maybe not worth it all)...
