July is a great month: fireworks, my birthday, great weather, and did I mention fireworks. The 4th of July is my favorite holiday of the year, however this year was a little different. We had a great day but it was like any other day. Fred had to go into work that morning but he was home by 10:30. Blaiden woke up from his morning nap and so we thought it would be fun to go eat some nice and greasy carnival food. Last year our town had a very small park filled with holiday fun but when we drove by it was empty. We tried going down where there was a morning parade but again we found an empty parking lot. I guess everyone is waiting until the weekend to celebrate. That night we went over to a friends house for a BBQ. It was a fun little get-together. Like usual we were the first ones to leave so Blaiden could go to bed. Fred and I stayed up for a while but we were in bed before any of the fireworks went off. Maybe we will catch some this weekend.
I was holding the camera for most of the day so here are some pictures of my favorite men. I love this picture of Fred and Blaiden snuggling on the couch. It is amazing how much they look alike. Like father like son.
