Happy 4th of July

Happy Birthday, America. We had a wonderful 4th this year. Perhaps it was because this is Sydney's first. We bought her 2 little American flags and she carried them everywhere with her. She woke up VERY early today and because of that had to nap early which made her a bit late to the bar-b-que. Oh well, mama don't mess with nap times. Especially when we have plans for the evening. After a good day with family. we all piled into the Big Mama Van and headed to Viburnum for fireworks. This could have gone two ways. One: Sydney enjoys the experience and is facinated by the lights and sounds. Or two: we all quickly pile back into Big Mama and book the screaming Chinese child back to Oates! Well, when the first blast of fireworks exploded, Sydney jumped and climbed frantically up Sarah into her daddy's arms. However she didn't cry and as long as Daddy held her tight, she pretty much enjoyed them. About 3/4 way through the display she fell asleep. So precious.
