this year’s independence day celebrating

we got home from norway on the third of july and went straight into celebrating the next day! it’s always peculiar to commemorate independence day in the country from which independence was fought for … but we have a good time with it 🙂

this year on the fourth of july i took the boys to meet up with some friends at the v&a museum paddling pool for a little party with american flags and treats. (ian had a friend from his college days in town so he met up with us after!) it was a really fun morning with pals!

that afternoon, we went as a family to splash in the fountains at somerset house. we all had a blast! after we dried off, we went to our old neighborhood – covent garden – and ate an all-american dinner at shake shack.

it was a happy independence day in london!


  1. I love how excited you get about the 4th of July even tho you’re not in the US on that day.

    I especially like how you get all the colours of your clothes to match.
