vacation recap; 4th of July

we spent the afternoon at Chris' aunt & uncles house, they had a cookout feast with delicious food and great weather. after dinner, we were reminiscing and one thing led to another, and we ended up looking through the cedar chest full of Magee family history. if you know me well, you know i love this kind of thing. especially if it's people i love. we spent the rest of the afternoon looking at adorable pictures of Rhonda (chris's mom) as a wee one, and good lord she was CUTE. and so was her sister. and her mom (Bertha). we've got some good genes in this family. it was such a great way to spend the holiday with family.

(Rhonda's baby book; a photo of each birthday 1st - 7th, such a cute idea)
