We spent the day with my family, swimming at grandma's and grandpa's, BBQ-ing, and then it was off to the park to watch the fireworks for the big kids and daddy since Griffin and Morgan don't seem to enjoy fireworks and Griffin screams hysterically when he hears them explode. The crying and Morgan's nervousness continued when they were in their beds since they could still hear the loud boom of the fireworks from their bedrooms. Maybe next year we will all be able to go watch fireworks together.
What a beautiful little baby doll!! Happy first 4th of July, Mia!
On a side note-- we forgot to put up any of our 4th of July decorations this year so Hadley and Ryan were frantically putting up some of the decorations today. Hadley brought me one of them and asked why something with Santa Claus on it was in with the 4th of July stuff. I told her that was actually Uncle Sam. She looked at it for awhile and then said, "I guess I don't remember our uncle Sam."
