Summer Days

Hi Everyone!

Wow, what a week!  We have been so busy, summer is definitely here. Our holiday was a blast, every 4th of July we spend the day at the beach. We live close so we run home after a VERY sandy day and clean up and come back down for the fireworks show.  One of our favorite parts of the day is sunset when all of the sailboats are sailing and the sun begins to disappear it's just too beautiful for words! Well I guess I had that image on my brain when I came up with this card.... Although, Not even close to our beautiful scene on the 4th. Hope you enjoy!
