Fireworks = Fun

Avery spent Thursday night with Nonna and Poppa because she would've been the only one in daycare on Friday. Shame on Chase for making us work...on July 3rd...wow, I sound like one spoiled American! (And we do get a floating holiday, so I have an extra day off now - yay!) We were supposed to come Saturday morning but Charlie ended up getting to leave work early and of course the only thing I wanted to do was get to my baby! We surprised my parents who were eating with Avery at the hotel on the Riverwalk waiting on fireworks. Avery had a bllllast running around and entertaining everyone and was totally mesmerized and not one bit scared (unlike her mommy when I was her age).

Today Nonna grilled shish-kabobs and we had fresh cream corn and homemade macaroni-n-cheese with cherry cobler and Mamaw's Chocolate Pie. Y-U-M!!! We even did a few sparklers for Avery. We enjoyed our 4th of July and I hope you have as well!

And now for the pictures...courtesy, as always, of Nonna...
Pretty Fireworks...
"Nonna, put that silly camera down! You're gonna miss the fireworks!!! See...?!?"
I think she missed her da-da :)
But I think she had tons of fun with her Nonna and Poppa too...

And I'm so glad we're all together now!
