7/4/17- Daddy had July 4th off the first time since medical school! He had to work the day before and the day after so we couldn’t really go anywhere or really even go see fireworks. Instead we decided to have Ryan and Ashley over to grill out. So we had a nice relaxing morning, hanging out outside. Baylor played on his swingset, Michael and I took turns playing with him and chilling in the hammock. Baylor and Michael went to go buy some little fireworks to do ourselves since we couldn’t go to the big show. They brought home milkshakes as a yummy surprise!
Ryan and Ashley came over around 6. We grilled chicken and veggie kabobs, and had pasta salad and watermelon. Then we got out our fire pit and made smores for dessert! As we were finishing, it started getting dark so we started setting off our fireworks. We were a little surprised to see that Baylor LOVED them- especially the sparklers. He even tried them himself, with a little help from Daddy. Fortunately, lots of neighbors were setting off their own big fireworks displays so we went for a walk and watched several different people’s fireworks. Baylor thought that was pretty awesome. He was a trooper- he stayed up until almost 10pm!! He had so much fun. He gave me a big hug when we got home and said “Thank you for fireworks, Mama” which was just about enough to melt my heart. You’re so welcome, sweet buddy. I couldn’t be happier than when you are happy.
