(Tried to post this the other day but blogger wasn't working)
Yes it is July 11th and I am posting about July 4th. Oh well, the pics of my little birds were too cute to not post. The Mr. is still on the road and missed out on the 4th festivities. We started the day by running to the store and getting babybird a new carseat. She has out grown her infant seat and she is only 6 months. Since she still needs to be rear-facing we had to get her a convertible seat. Man they grow fast. We then grabbed a quick lunch at one of our favorites, Chick-fil-a. LittleBird can spot chick-fil-a signs and skyline signs (Cincinnati thing) from a mile away. After lunch we parked at my sis-in-laws and walked up a small mountain (well felt like it) in the 95 degree, 100% humidity weather to the local parade. It was fun, the girls held their ears most of the time. By the way, what has happened to parades? When I was young everyone walked or made super cool floats. Now its a poster board stuck to the side of a pick-up with a few random people in the back, that makes me a little sad. We did see one random patriotic guy on a segway:) After the parade we headed to the festival where we were packed in like sardines. There was sooo many people. We bought 20 tickets to ride on some rides and only used 4. PrettyBird wouldn't ride any rides, LittleBird wated to ride everything she saw (we limited her to 2 rides) and Babybird slept in the carrier. We then headed to a field to watch the fireworks and it was at that point that my birds completely fell apart and we headed home. At least I got to see a couple cool fireworks. This was an overly detailed post about our day, oh well. Somedays we just have to do a bunch of stuff so we don't miss our Mr. too much while he is gone. It was one of those days. Below are some pics. What did you 4th of July look like?
