Foto Friday: 4th of July Pics

Norah before the parade in the morning:

Caleb and I pre-parade as well:

Norah doing some jumping at our friend's house where we did pool/bbq/fireworks:  The pool was a welcome respite from the usual July heat (although, it was cooler here than it was for some of you!).

Caleb was more interested in playing with the big cars and trucks than he was in swimming:

Miller and Norah watching a fountain (this was the tamest 4th we've ever done in terms of explosives; our checking account appreciated that!):

Norah and I (and Erin, Miller, and Mason in the background) watching the firework finale:

It was a good 4th of July, in my opinion, but man alive, the day wore me out!  When we got home, at 9 pm, mind you, I went to bed with Norah.  I was beat!  And to return to work on Thursday?  Well, that was kinda cruel!  The 4th should always be finagled into some kind of long weekend.  That's my 2 cents.

While we're on it, I also think Nov. 1st should be a holiday and the Monday after the Super Bowl.  There.  I said it.  Now, someone make that happen!

I completely agree with you about making it a mandated long weekend!! Everyone looks absolutely adorable!!

Love all your photos! Norah's headband is awesome.

You are looking great!

I agree with your additional holiday ideas. I also think mother's with school age children should get a sabatical during the summers while their children are elementary age. I mean those of us who don't already have summers off.

We were talking about how the 4th of July should always be celebrated on a Friday. Because even when it's a Monday and you still have the long weekend, you still have to go to work the next morning.

I was tough to have to go to work the next day..but still always nice to have a day off!

And yes, the day after the superbowl should be a mandated holiday.

Cute pics!

you watched the fireworks finale and were home by 9? wow, what a difference a few hundred miles make! here in MI they don't even start until after 10. we tried to show them to our little lady but she didn't quite make it. she saw the neighbor set off a few so we told her she saw them :)
