and now you can have that song stuck in your head all day, too.
sunday and monday we enjoyed no work and all play.
it was hot outside and my allergies
were are going crazy.
i kinda didn't care. not having itchy eyes would be cool though.
apparently fireworks are super legal here. even downtown.
right outside of my windows.
for the entire weekend.
from the sound of it, people spent
their life's savings on firecrackers. and alcohol.
what an awesome combination, yes?
oh, and toss in my not-so-sleeping toddler
and you have a real live show!
even so, we enjoyed the festivities at the river.
the little parade was pretty funny.
the petting zoo was also funny.
only because it was really just a looking zoo.
blue bubblegum shaved ice was consumed. happy mama.
elijah waved his tiny american flag
all. day. long. with great pride.
at 10:30(that's when it gets dark here in the summer!)
we fled the mosquitoes and perched on the ledge
of a parking garage. it was fireworks time!
elijah loved them last year.
this year, he kept gasping and covering his mouth
with both hands and then covered his face with patrick's hat.
our little family really had a great weekend.
celebrating our freedom and independence. and each other.
hey! have you entered the big giveaway yet?
great news! i've extended it until sunday!
