Fourth of July

I love the Fourth of July! I am not sure what it is about it...maybe because it is summer, everybody is celebrating, cooking out, and having fun. I remember when we were younger (before we got too old and too cool) hanging out in our cul-de-sac with all of our neighbors, cooking out, playing with sparklers, and having the best time.

Yesterday the three of us started our day at the pool. We spent a couple of hours there playing hard, eating lunch, and playing hard again. Reese loves the pool and loves playing on the stairs with all of her toys, jumping and "swimming" to mommy or daddy. After the pool Reese took a good nap and woke up in a foul mood. We were heading to some friends house and were hesitant of her behavior. I told her where we were going and that she had to be sweet. When we got there she snapped right out of her funk and loved following around the big girls.

We had dinner, ate some cupcakes, the kids (and Dads) played with water balloons, and played with sparklers.

After the cookout we went to Roswell High School where they have a fireworks show. They had a band, jump houses, and all sorts of junk any kid would love to have. Reese loved dancing with the music while the big girls played in the jump houses.

The fireworks started around 9:30 or so. Reese wasn't sure what to think at first. Her eyes were wide open and taking it all in.

We finally got home around 11:00 or so with a wide eyed girl. She had so much fun during the day she wasn't so sure about going to bed. We had a great day with some great friends and were so glad to spend time with them!!
