Baby, you’re a firework!

Baby, you’re a firework!

Oh what a fun July 4th we had!  It was a little sad because Tyler had to work a 12-hour shift (boo!) so it was just me and my girl. But we made the most of it!

We hung out at home in the morning, watching her CRAWL all over the place. She’s officially crawling on her knees and getting everywhere FAST. So I spent the morning watching her crawl around and baby-proofing as we went. Then she napped and I got her ready to go.

She looked red, white and cute!

We went to town for our city’s FreedomFest.  It’s the best.  Seeing lots of friends, music, food, vendors…so much fun. She was entered in our little patriotic pageant.

She was pretty excited before it started.

I carried her on stage to show her off. She finally smiled at the end of the stage. Little ham!

She won her age division. We were so surprised! It’s a fundraiser, so we were just there to support our friends…but getting some fun trophies was a nice surprise!

Miss Freedom Fest Tiny Tot Queen!

All of the winners (and me, who was making sure she didn’t crawl off the stage!)

Her boyfriend James came by to congratulate her! So sweet!

Our family was there, which is always fun!  We were so thankful that Heather and Kelsey and my bestie Brandy came to cheer her on!

We may have had a little too much fun with Her Majesty.

Sweet girl!

After the pageant, we walked around the festival and ate lunch.  But then it was naptime, so we came home.

After naps, Grandpa showed up to play! She loved his funny noises!

And a little later, uncle Dwight joined the fun!

Once Tyler FINALLY got off work, Remi was already in bed, so Gigi stayed with her while we went back to the festival.  There was a fun bluegrass country band playing, so we put our chairs in the middle of a bunch of friends, visited, ate dinner, listened to the music and waited for the fireworks.

A delish low carb dinner from a food truck.  A philly without a bun and bacon wrapped pickles! YUM!

At dark, we went and found dessert and moved our chairs back for the fireworks show. Our town puts on a great fireworks show. They turn the lights off on the square and play a fun patriotic sound track that the fireworks are set to. Lots of fun!

It was a late night getting home, but so worth it for a little hometown date and seeing the fireworks.

I hope you all had a fun 4th as well!
