4th of July

There may have been some tears.  Some tantrums.  Some heat.  Some unsuccessful photo attempts.  Some difficulty getting out of the house in a timely manner, resulting in this mama walking several blocks with kids in tow to get to our parade watching spot since the parade route was blocked off.  But amidst the sweat and tears, we still managed to have another wonderful 4th of July.

Briggs loved his 4th.  He LOVED the parade.  He waved...and waved...and waved at every vehicle that passed.  He identified every tractor and fire truck and police car, but he picked his favorite as the "bubble truck" (which was a float that had a bubble machine blowing bubbles off the back).  He also loved the food, the cousins, and the fireworks.  And I loved the 3 hour nap that we both took.

Although the day started off a bit on the dramatic side, Adelie pulled it together for a fun day as well.  She liked the parade (especially the candy), playing with her cousins, glow bracelets for the fireworks, and sitting with Uma to watch the fireworks.  Although Staley didn't cover her ears at all during the fire trucks at the parade or the fireworks, Adelie did.

Staley enjoyed all her cousin time and staying up late for the fireworks.  She was also very enthusiastic about making things for our celebration.  She made a number of 4th of July signs and pictures, and was super-enthused about making the pretzel rod sparklers from her Aunt Sandi cookbook.

Adelie enjoyed helping make them as well, and they turned out really cute.

A parade, play time with cousins, good food, good naps, and fireworks.

Indeed it was a happy 4th!!
