The 4th of July

So, I know its a little late for the 4th, but when I originally started our blog, the 4th had just occured, so pretend like I wrote this 2 weeks ago. Okay.

We spent the 4th of July in Modesto with Grandma D and the Willies. It was quite a little getaway, but busy, weekend. We took the boys to music in the park the night before the 4th and got to listen and clap to some fun patriotic music. Mama's Boy fell asleep, and Big Brother spent most of the time playing with a little battery operated hand-fan, that lights up red and blue. He was mesmorized.
Then we went to the 4th of July parade in the morning where again, Mama's Boy fell asleep on The "real" Boss, and Big Brother watched intensly as all the people and cars went by. There weren't many floats, but it was entertaining anyway. Then we had a BBQ at Uncle Mikes and Aunt Sariahs. We ate, played games, visited, and then enjoyed some fireworks.

Big Brother seemed indifferent about them. Like he was curious, but a little scared.
Mama's Boy clearly did not like them.
We had to take him inside, where he immediately turned his frown upside down.
So, it was busy, but fun. And we look forward to it next year.
