Actual Date: Sunday, July 3, 2011
Now that Ava was feeling better we decided to go to some 4th of July festivities in the next town over.
All the kids were decked out in their Patriotic best.
I got this dress for Brooke at Gymboree during their $4.99 sale. It was originally $49.99 and I got it for $4.99!
I love when that happens.
There was fun slides for the kids to play on.
The girls LOVED this part.
But there weren't very many and we had to wait in line for-ev-er. I thought we were at Disneyland or something.
After awhile we laid out our blanket and chairs and grabbed a spot to watch the fireworks.
The kids ran around and played but everyone was getting tired and cranky, including Daddy and Mommy so we decided to go back to the car and watch the fireworks. We had parked on the top of a parking garage so we would have had a pretty good view.
As we started to walk we hear a loud bang what seemed to be right next to us. We stopped and threw down our blankets to watch the show.
It worked out good. I think we got one of the best seats in the house.
That was until a train went flying by about ten feet behind us. He blew his horn and about scared all of us to death. Everyone but Parker that is. He got excited and started yelling "Thomas Train! Thomas Train!"
