I love the 4th of July! It's been my favorite holiday ever since I was a little girl, I remember going to the fireworks with my family and sitting with my Daddy it seemed like they took up the whole sky and the sound of the booms and the smell of them. And going to the rodeos and BBQ's it all just makes me smile. I would like to say THANK YOU to all our soldiers who've fought to get us here and continue to fight to keep us free! With out their sacrifices we could not enjoy the things we do! so thank you. This year Mom and I took Brooks and Paisley to Cowabunga, it was a lot of fun. Brooks had been looking forward to this FOREVER, so it was fun to finally take him. He loved it and so did Paisley. I took her in the wading pool and she just smiled and kicked her little legs it was pretty cute! Brooks was playing with this little Hispanic girl and he came up to my Mom and said "I have a friend of a different color" My Mom said yeah and that's ok :) Then Brooks says "Yeah, she has a yellow bracelet and I have orange" Ha Mom totally thought he was talking about the color of her skin, but you have a colored wristband that shows how long you can be there since we only paid for 4 hours of play. It was just so cute. Then we went to the parade and Brooks made off with a big bucket full of candy. Paisley slept through the whole parade, sirens and all. We went up to the Brighton breakfast the next day, it was a lot of fun they had a little parade and lots of good candy. The breakfast was really yummy and we took a mini hike, it was so beautiful up there! Later that night we hit up the carnival, Brooks had tons of fun on the rides. He rode just about every ride he could. There was one ride that we went on together because it was a bigger kid ride, it gave you a lot of butterflies! Every time it went around Brooks would say ouch ouch ha I'm not sure he'd felt that. But then he wanted to go on it again and said I won't say ouch this time :) So he liked it. We had a little picnic in our backyard and did some little fireworks at home before heading over to the big fireworks show. They were really good they're definitely not the same as when I was little, they didn't seem to have the same kind of magic until I looked at Brooks and saw that same awe in his eyes. It was a good weekend and I loved spending it with my babies!
(I'll have to post the parade pictures later)
