I'm talking about the 4th on the 8th. That seems about right these days!
And I just did a post about Jesse's 3 month birthday and scheduled it back in time on the 3rd, to pretend like I did it on time, like a good mom!
We had a super fun 4th.
The sad part was that Marcus had to work! The fire department can't close for holidays!
We started the day at a little parade in my sister's neighborhood.
We decorated Katie's scooter. It was hard to make a pink and purple princess scooter look patriotic!
The fire truck even came to be apart of the parade!
(sadly, not Marcus's department)
This was Jesse's face after a quick little honk honk and siren from the firemen! I sure hope he grows out of that.
Katie did great in the parade. She took a little short cut and finished early. It was HOT!
She cooled off with a popsicle.
We took a little nap and then headed to my brother in law's house.

And Katie going down the little roller coaster! FUN!
This is Katie's, "I'm ready to swim!" Song and dance:
I didn't choose to put on my bathing suit with such a large audience, so Katie had to wear her lady bug. She's a pretty good swimmer, but it's better to be safe than sorry!
She jumped off the diving board a million times.
The really nice thing is that we could stay in the back yard for fireworks. They were SUPER close.
That made it nice and convenient with a baby.
My mom and Jesse.
He fell asleep half way through the show!
It was a fun day, but we missed Marcus a ton!
I am SO thankful to live in America. It's getting a little crazy here, but it's still the best place in the world to live.
