Gabby’s Monthly Memory

❤️ Happy 4th of July! 💙

Gabby spent most of her 4th of July holidays in Vail with family. She loved the Colorado mountains. From bike rides and parade watching adorned with red, white, and blue to evening BBQs under the starlit sky, every moment sparkled with love and laughter. The joy on her face as fireworks painted the night sky mirrored the warmth in our hearts. Here’s to cherished moments with loved ones and unforgettable celebrations!

Gabby and 3 other kids looking up with a funny startled expression on their faces. There is a large rock in front of them that gabby is holding onto on the right bottom of the photo. We see grass, rocks, and the bottom of some pebble structure behind them.
