God Bless America

We had a great Independence Day! We took the kids to see the parade in the morning and then to see the fireworks at night. They did really well at both events so, we had a lot of fun!

Granny would be so proud! Look at my little Miss America!

Jacob got a lot of attention from parade participants. There were a few who came over to try and shake his hand or get a "high five" out of him. Jacob just sort of looked at them like, what are you doing?

Savannah got really into the parade at the beginning but slowly the enthusiasm wore off when no one was throwing things to her. Joseph was scared of the noise. When the fire engines blew their horns or when the cars revved their engines, Joseph would run to daddy and make him cover his ears.

Just in case you are wondering why Savannah is wearing Joseph's shirt while he himself is topless, we had brought pizza to the fireworks show for dinner. Savannah found that little container of garlic butter that they stick in the boxes and she wanted to know what it was so she opened it! But she also succeeded in spilling most of it onto her shirt. So, Joseph, being the manly man that he is, graciously gave up his shirt for her. =)

Jacob loved the fireworks!

God Bless America!
