4th of July!

I was going to take Abigail to see the 4th of July parade this year, but didn't want to get out in the muggy weather. It had been raining so much that the ground was still wet. Maybe we'll see the parade next year. We spent the morning of 4th of July serving in the nursery at church. We met a new couple at the church, which is always fun. Then, we had lunch with friends from our community group. After nap time, it was time to head over to Towne Green to set up to watch the fireworks. I made the mistake of thinking we could just buy food there. The lines were long & it was expensive. Note to self: eat before we go or bring a picnic dinner next time! The kids had fun rolling down the hill on the lawn where we were sitting. The kids started to get a little bored waiting for the fireworks. The fireworks didn't start until 9:30 pm! Abigail was so excited all day about seeing the "sireworks," but when the fireworks started, she was so scared of them. She was asking us to turn them off. James ended up walking further away with her, so it wasn't so loud for her. He bumped into some more friends of ours, so that was fun. We had a good time despite Abigail being scared of the fireworks! It wasn't blazing hot outside either, which was nice. However, I just kept thinking we should have cooked outside because 4th of July just makes me think of bar-b-ques! There's always next year right?
