4th of July Photo Overload

We had a great 4th of July. The parade was so much fun and the competition was fierce.  We lost to a giant home made float! AKA a dad with WAAAAAAYYYY too much time on his hands.  It's OK though.  We know what we are up against for next year.  After the parade we came home and took naps for a couple of hours and then headed out to Red, White and Boom hosted by some of the local radio stations.  It was a great fireworks display and Aidan had the best time.   He sat in my lap and admired the fireworks and I kissed his head with tears in my eyes because I know we are so lucky to be bringing up a child in a free country.   One of my best friends Amanda joined us (and to use AKA again) AKA Our second wife and we always really enjoy her company. Aidan can finally say Amanda so that makes my heart smile.   We had planned on drinking wine when we got back to the house but we were both so exhausted she headed home.   I do miss our sleepovers.  We are continuing our weekend tomorrow on the boat with my parents.  Personally we are thrilled my mom will be joining us. She typically lets all of us have the fun and stays behind so we are happy to report she has agreed to join us for the day.  I can't wait to float around in the sun on the water and chit chat with her.

We hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday. Happy Birthday America and without further adieu...one million 4th of July pictures and two videos of my angel.

You don't have to look at them all but this is my blog and my scrapbook so there. Haha!

We convinced him to wear the patriotic hat by taping it to his fireman hat.

Isn't he the cutest.

A little pre parade pep talk from Daddy.

Off they go!
He got to climb up on the firetruck afterwards. The best part of his day!




Mr. July
Pedaling Home.
He is always putting his hands in his pocket like my dad so we had to get a picture.
Smooching Amanda.
