The Fourth

There were no shortage of photo opportunities this weekend, no fewer than 4 patriotic outfits the 6-month-old wore (only 1 that Mommy washed every night and rewore to every event). We swam, we cooked out, Daddy set off fireworks, we paraded, we played outside, we played inside, we napped A LOT, we ate baked beans EVERY DAY. It was an eventful weekend that pushed this little man to the edge and back.

But the camera just wasn't used like it should have been. So what you see is about the extent of the photographic evidence of a really exhausting, super fun weekend. We even had to pass up some super fun parties because there was just so much to do and Colt was just so worn out! But I can say, he is proud to be an American and very happy to celebrate Independence Day.

By next year we'll have him saluting soldiers in the parade and waving sparklers on the back porch. And eating more baked beans.

What a great holiday! Keep wearing him out... take him everywhere and don't slow down. He may not remember the specific events, but he will know life as a big adventure! It just gets better each year :-)
