Our Independence Day started off with a disappointing trip to a fair- turned into a jaunt to Walden Pond, followed by soft serve, BBQ, my first sighting of fireflies (a life long dream- pure magic) and a spectacular firework show.
it was pretty perfect. I love this country and I love this holiday.
it ranks 3rd in the order of holidays just after Thanksgiving and right before Valentine's Day.
surprisingly, Clara ended up loving the fireworks. I was a little worried about how she'd handle it but she thought it was the coolest thing. Her eyes were glued to the sky and her little smile was peeking out from behind her binky the whole time. Not a peep.
I hope your holiday was as good as ours! Happy Friday!
