These are images from our weekend. We had a great 4th. It started out Friday night with a cook out at the club. The next morning we got up early and went to the local park for a parade. I think everyone that lives in this town and in the surrounding areas was there. It was great - beautiful weather, funnel cakes, lemonade, car parade, kids decked out in 4th of July gear. We felt like we were in a movie from the 50s! In the afternoon we went to the pool and relaxed before coming home and grilling out. Since Riley is only 1 she wasn't able to make it to the fireworks (They didn't start until 10:00.) We lit off a few of the lame, legal kind in our driveway for her. She was somewhat interested. After such a full day, she actually went to bed early. So, Paul and I sat outside on our side porch and drank a few beers and listened to the fireworks in the distance. All in all, it was a great weekend.
On a side note, I don't know if any of you out there have young children, but Riley is in the beginning stages of walking. Let me tell you, it isn't for the faint of heart! In one weekend she has skinned her knee, cut her toe, busted her upper lip and bumped her head! Here is a photo showing off her skinned knee. It breaks my heart every time!
