Fourth of July with Our Little Firecracker

Since Tipp was only 2 1/2 weeks old, we stayed home for the 4th this year rather than heading to the beach.  Nana, Big Daddy and the Aunt’s were also in town, so we finally left the house for more than an hour to enjoy a little cookout.  My dad made ribs and we had homemade peach ice cream.  IMG_5535We had such good evening being out of the house and I think Tipp enjoyed his first 4th of July!

Happy Father’s Day

My wish came true and Tipp arrived just in time for Father’s Day!  We could not have had a better day, celebrating with Ben and my dad and finally bringing home Tipp.IMG_5433IMG_5434

My dad, or Big Daddy, and the girls came over for lunch.  They brought us a wonderful lunch of pork tenderloin, cranberry salad, broccoli salad, rolls and peach ice cream.IMG_5431  

Other than the birth of his son, I gave Ben a braided leather bracelet with Dad inscripted on it.  He received a couple of Fatherhood books from both of parents as well as a new Polo shirt.  IMG_5419

We are so happy we could share this first Father’s Day as a family celebrating the newest arrival to our little family!
