Fourth of July 2011 + Freebie

Here I am sitting today cleaning up around my blog, new summer topper, ect.  when I was very calmly reminded by my very own dear sweet nine year old princess.

"um, mommy, you have forgotten 4th of july!!"  

I even have some digital elements made for a USA layout freebie!! here's some quick photos,  and yes the freebie too....cannot forget that. ;)

the kids had three days of smoke bombing - firecracker exploding tanks.
they had quite the battle going on.  fun for all.
The older boys set off some bigger, louder, better fireworks!
There ya have it... happy birthday USA in 2011!

Here's the link to the freebie digital kit download i used to create this layout...
