Scrapbook | Independence Day(s)

 the WHOLE family (minus baby james, sadly) ventured up to lexington, kentucky, to celebrate the fourth of july with our dear sarah and jeremiah this week! we got to see that growing baby bump, visit one of our favorite families (the sizemores!), and eat lots of free yogurt. not a bad week.

we watched fireworks from sarah and jer's new land with a bunch of friends. when the sun set, hundreds of fireflies began glowing in the wheat field. so gorgeous.

besides owning wheat fields, sarah and jer also own four (and counting) yogurt shops called orange leaf. so naturally we took a yogurt tour of lexington and visited every location in town. not a flavor was spared.

 we drove through bluegrass country to eat at this fun restaurant, windy corner market, with all the families.

all good things must end, as they say, so we had a family brunch at a local restaurant called doodle before heading back to our homes around the country. i suppose it's really a good thing when you're sad to leave your family!
