What a fun forth of July! Finally! After so many years of Rob either being deployed, or fireworks being cancelled due to wind, or major extreme heat (115+), we FINALLY had a wonderful 4th!
We decided after much debate to go to the Henderson celebration. It seemed to be the most kid friendly. Plus it was close enough to us that if Squishy hated the fireworks we could leave. All of the games and rides were obviously to big for Squishy, but we found a nice spot of grass, spread out our blanket, and listened to the live bands. Squish loved the music – that is when he was awake. He slept a lot of the time, I think it was the fresh air that did him in.
While listening the music we managed to successfully nurse in public without too much of an incident. (pretty sure I didn’t flash anyone) We also enjoyed some chicken fingers with fries, and for dessert I had chocolate drizzled strawberries and bananas on a stick while hubs enjoyed a cheesecake on a stick. The only mishap was the Red Gatorade spilling on the blanket.
Finally it came time for the fireworks. Here we go… will he like them? …
Squishy LOVED them. He ooed and watched them very contently. He seemed to really love the colors, and didn’t really mind the loud booms. The show was wonderful, we saw some new fireworks that we hadn’t seen before. I loved the ones that looked like broccoli bushes! I posted some pics, but will put up more later from our wonderful evening. It really felt nice to have a great family outing. Perhaps it wasn’t the show, or the lack of horrible heat and wind, but having Rob home to celebrate, and having our new son that made the evening what it was.
