stripes, pancakes, fireworks and the like

Thursday, July 5

Given the humidity and heat index this year, we didn't actually venture out of the house until about 7pm. Which I will say was the best thing to ever happen to our 4th of July. Some of us hung out in our pajamas, while others preferred only diapers, and we made German pancakes {that I was this close to ruining but DID NOT hallelujah!!}, took turns taking naps and ended up watching two whole shows without pressing pause once. Luxury at it's finest.
In the evening, we met up with a few friends at a local park to watch the fireworks, which {to my utter shock, considering it was about 84 hours past his bedtime} Everett sat quietly on my lap and watched with fascination while he chomped on his flag. It's like it's his favorite holiday or something.

Hope you had a wonderful 4th of July! God bless America, this country that we love!

Bravo for kicking butt and getting your pictures from the 4th posted the day after! I uploaded all three hundred of mine and then died just THINKING about all the work involved with making a post (tomorrow, tomorrow it will get done).
Also, Everett...those don't go in your mouth, silly boy!

YUM German pancakes sound delish! We had pancakes as well, just the regular old flapjacks haha with strawberry freezer jam of course. It's great to hear you guys lounged around yesterday, we definitely took full advantage of our day off and relaxed to the max! Hope you had a great 4th!

Carly said...

Wasn't it GROSS out? We watched from the Air Force Memorial... walking 3 blocks to get there was killer. ;)

PS -- did you see the one that looked like a piece of toast or possibly Saturn?
