Fourth of July family fun….

We have been so busy lately gearing up for our upcoming road trip....Sophia is recovering wonderfully. It has been 1 month from her surgery and it really has become much easier, the first few weeks were tough, I dont want to lie, but she is settling in now and everything seems to have healed.
