Proud Little American

We had a really nice 4th of July weekend. Brian got an impressive 4.5 day weekend! Mattel usually gives them a 4 day weekend for big holidays but then also let him out early on Wednesday. So we had lots of fun relaxing family time. Austin is a little confused as to where Daddy is today though.

Saturday we had bbq lunch with Grandma Judy, Aunt DeeDee & Uncle Norm. Austin decked himself out in his best patriotic outfit.

(He won't wear a hat, so he has sunscreen in his hair. But I think it makes him look handsome! You know, if you ignore the greasiness of the situation.)

He got to eat his lunch outside.

That night we watched fireworks at Torrance High with the Millers, Schneiders, Rebecca & Jack and Rebecca's parents. It was very fun. Austin didn't mind the fireworks at all, but wasn't horribly impressed with them either. That probably had more to do with the lack of solid naps during the day. About 1/2 way through he was done and wanted to eat and go to sleep. But we (and by "we" I mean Rebecca) got some cute pics before that point. Rebecca is very handy to have around during kodak moments. (Can you have kodak moments when there's no film??)

Having lots of fun while waiting for fireworks.

A rare family pic!

I love this picture. A sweet Daddy and son moment!

Watching fireworks

Rebecca got some neat shots of the fireworks too. I heart fireworks. Next to good food, that's my favorite part of 4th of July!

What a nice way to celebrate our country's birthday. Best place to live!
