4th of July

What a tiring weekend! It is only 8:15 on Saturday night and we are already pooped and ready for bed...

Friday we took John to the annual 4th of July party at the Hagan's lakehouse. As usual, the Hagan's were wonderful hosts and we had a blast. John was a huge hit at the party and was passed from one person to the next for the majority of the day. He is such a sweetie and didn't cry the whole time! The lake is about 2 hours away so we were definitely tired from driving there and back in one day, although the trip was sooooo worth it! And how gorgeous is their new house???!!!

We went to The Colony's Independence Day Parade in the morning. I was really excited about it, although quite skeptical given The Colony's track record of events and activities. However, the parade was super cute and I felt like we were at a little hometown parade. It was also nice and short so John didn't get antsy. The only complaint I had was that we totally got skipped over for all the candy! And if you know me at all, I LOVE candy!! We got one lolly-pop and I managed to grab a couple random pieces of candy as we were walking back to the car. John kind of got to try his first lolly-pop, although I only let him suck on it for about a minute with the wrapper on. hehehe... I you give babies candy? I doubt it!

After the parade we went to mom and dad's for a bbq with the rest of the family. John had a great time in the pool with so many people and loves to play with Bella. He actually stood up at mom and dad's without pulling up on anything! He just stood up...crazy!!! He will be walking before I know it, and then the real chaos will begin.

As I said, we are pooped! John is of course asleep already which means we aren't seeing any fireworks tonight. Maybe next year...
