Fourth of July Fun!

I know, I know.  July 4th was almost a week ago. 

Oh well!  I wanted to post some of these pictures and document Kate's first celebration of our nation's birthday!

We had a very low key weekend and spent July 4th with some of our great friends here in Houston.  Andrew and Julia also attended Mississippi State and Alex and Andrew were in the same fraternity!  They live just down the street so we see them often!

Andrew cooked out for all of us before we headed out to watch the big firework show in Downtown Houston!  One perk of city living is the ability to walk and in return drink to the big show!

Kate and Daddy at Uncle Andrew and Aunt Julia's house!

Uncle Andrew!

Waiting on the fireworks.  I think red dixie cups are universally used to walk around outside while sipping on an adult beverage.  No?

The girls!

Like I mentioned Wednesday, Kate did great with the fireworks and was such a trooper being up way past her bedtime!  She passed out as soon as we started walking home - and stayed asleep while I changed her, put her jammies on, and put hr in her crib!

It was such a wonderful holiday!!

I LOVE your tank top! Red plastic cups remind me of vacation with my family. That is what my parents would buy so we wouldn't have as many dishes!

I am so impressed that you changed her and she stayed sleeping! That would never ever ever ever happen here. Good job! You all looked adorable as always. XO
