Yesterday afternoon we gathered with friends from the Baby’s Club and enjoyed a picnic at Chaparral Park, complete with holiday gift packs (thanks to Nicole) and a bounce house.

Kate wears her summery Fourth of July outfit, the afternoon heat bears down.

It was a great gathering with friends, cool in the shade, and a lot of fun for the kids (a bounce house for five hours is a pretty great way to insure that they will have a great time!)
