The 4th of July might be one of my favorite holidays. Here are our celebrations in 2011 and 2010. It was a little different this year -- Daddy had to work and Uncle Reggie and Aunt Jaime were home with their new baby girl.
We ventured to the Nappanee 4th of July parade. Tyson loved it. He got to ride all around town with grandpa in Uncle John's Gator. Quinny, grandma and I enjoyed the parade from a shady spot on the route.
Quinny, ever disapproving, waited patiently for the parade to start.
There's just something so American about a small town parade. The police car started it off.
Flags -- notice the guys watching from the other side of the street -- one with his hand over his heart, the other saluting.
Quinn wasn't too thrilled with all of the loud noises from the horns and sirens but she LOVED her first lollipop. :)
We found Tyson after the parade was over, still sitting in the Gator. :)
I am a 30-something first time Mom and have been married since November 2003 to my wonderful husband. Our son, Tyson was born in May 2009. I'm currently working part-time as an attorney and loving every minute of our sweet little boy.
One of my 2010 New Year's Resolutions is to be a better photographer, so I'm taking at least one photo each day, mostly of Tyson.
