Happy 4th! We spent the evening at my DD's & SIL's house. We had an afternoon/early evening heavy thunderstorm that interrupted everyone's holiday activities, but thankfully it soon cleared up and fireworks went on as scheduled. For the first time, we sat at the park where they put off our town's fireworks. Up until now, we always took the kids to one of the local viewing spots in town to watch them from afar. Sitting right at the heart of it all, we realized just how much we actually missed - we were only seeing the ones that went up really high and were totally missing a good chunk of the show! Plus it was accompanied by patriotic John Phillip Sousa band music! Quite enjoyed it all!
My granddaughter did not come with us to the show- it was past her bedtime, and besides, the noise would have terrified her! Nonetheless, she quite enjoyed her July 4th at Aunt "Buckty" and Uncle "Ra" house. She came prepared for the rain, wearing her "doot doot" boots. (You know- from the song Baby Shark"? Doo-doo-doo....and her boots are sharks...?? get it now?) Anywho--- just had to share this pic of her jumping in the only little muddy puddle she could find....Cause, you know- when you are a huge fan of Peppa Pig and you have doot doot boots....you just gotta go jump in muddy puddles! "Everyone loves to jump in muddy puddles!"
