This years fourth of July has been extremely better than last year! First off, most people aren't doing fireworks, much less the freaking loud aerial ones so that's nice that we won't have to try and go to sleep tonight to the sound of cannons going off basically. Also, we don't have a week old baby so we aren't sleep deprived or exhausted or hormonal. All the ingredients for a great holiday! haha. I'm actually sad we're not lighting off any fireworks tonight. That's usually my favorite thing to do. But that's ok, there will be many more years to come.
Cory was lucky enough to have the 1st-5th off (almost) so we had lots of fun things planned and family time squared away. The last time he had this many days off was when we went to Moab. Here are some fun things we've done. I'm sure there's more to come before he returns to work.
We went to the International Peace Gardens. I remembered them being super cool. They were cool, but the heat has obviously made the gardens suffer And some countries gardens were pretty lame. But most were cool and we enjoyed walked around and spending time together.
We also went to Liberty Park and played in the Seven Rivers area. It's pretty cool but since it's been so hot, it was very crowded. Kennedy loved it. We'll have to take her back with a swim diaper.
This looks like a sunrise but it was the moon. SO BIG!!
