Independence Day

Happy 4th of July!

4th 01

Since we have a little one this year, we opted out of the big shows and just spent the evening at my sister's house. We just weren't sure how Evey would react to all of the noise and hoopla. Here is the little sparkler, chillin' in a kiddie lawn chair...

Fun with streamers...

4th 05

I went wild and spent $5 at Target on fireworks. I bought several packages of the snappers and a package of party poppers. Whoop whoop! ;-) Maddox enjoyed the snappers...

4th 02

Enjoying a festive patriotic cookie...yum!

4th 03

Evey took a nap after dinner...but it must not have been enough rest. She spent the fireworks portion of the evening with her head down on Papa's shoulder, watching the show out of the corner of her eye.

My sister definitely invested in more fireworks than I did. ;-)
They put on a great show...

Maddox said that the 4th of July was even better than Halloween. Which is HUGE! He has been obsessed with Halloween ever since last October. He even said it was the best day of his life. I haven't heard that since the day we put up the Christmas tree! It's going to be quite a weekend for the fella - his birthday party is tomorrow! The 4th of July and a birthday party all in one weekend! Good times...
