Happy 5th of July!

So I am a day behind on my 4th of July post, oops. We had a pretty low key day so not much to report. We started out early going to our local 4th of July parade. Eliza has never been to a parade so we weren't sure how she would receive it.

We parked in our church's parking lot and walked into town, to say it was HOT is such an understatement. We found a nice shaded spot under a tree and waited for the parade. It was your typical parade-politicians asking for your vote, police man, fireman, and lots of wonderful Veterans. Eliza really enjoyed when people would toss candy to her, any dogs that walked in the parades, the horses, and anyone who would wave to her. She did a wonderful job. We stepped out about halfway through the parade as it was getting even hotter. When we got to the car it said it was 95*, we couldn't handle it anymore.

Clapping for the vets

Here come the horses

Asking where the planes went

Imitating the fire trucks

We spent the most of the day at home in the AC and in the basement trying to stay cool.

Eliza enjoyed her first frozen icee, that is until Mark jumped out and scared her and she threw it on the ground. It was pretty funny.

We went out to dinner because I couldn't bare to think of cooking in the house. I found this shirt at TJ Maxx for $10, it comes with pants and is actually for next summer but fit this year as a dress, I love it!

I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July, I hope you remember the true meaning of the day. Thank you to everyone who has sacrificed their lives and their time to make this world a better place for my little chickadee to grow up! God Bless.

Can I ask where you got that stuffed elephant she's sitting on? It look like a fun seat!
