Happy 4th!

We had a nice and relaxing 4th of July weekend this year. Since we knew we'd be having the baby around the 4th, we didn't really make any big plans.

We started out the day by walking up to the parade on Main Street. Emmy, of course, loved it. She was really good at running into the street to pick up candy!

Then we came back home and took advantage of the nice, warm weather. We got Emmy into her swimsuit and she swam in her little pool and played outside for a while.

And what is the 4th without a little BBQ? We went to my parent's house and had a yummy BBQ complete with hamburgers, potato salad, brownies and homemade ice cream. Yum yum!

When everyone was tuckered out, we took naps (which are very necessary for me these days - Kate is set on being up all night eating and sleeping all day. I am just wondering when her sleeping schedule will flip-flop so that mommy can get some sleep!).

And, of course, what is the 4th without fireworks? We bought our own and Emmy absolutely loved watching them. After those were done, we watched the city fireworks.

Overall, we had a great 4th of July weekend! Here are some highlights:

Oh, the fun of fireworks!

I love the pictures You make cute girls. I love this book Healthy sleep Habits Happy Child by Marc Weissbluth they give some great ideas for flip flop schedules. I hope you get some sleep.
