Our little firecracker

Our first Fourth of July with Lindy was very low key, but we were oh so happy to have our little firecracker home with us, and did find the time to take some pictures.

During the day Mommy sang many patriotic songs to Lindy. She especially liked "Yankee Doodle Went to Town," and "You're a Grand Old Flag." When asked what it means to be an American, Lindy replied, "Bird, Bible, and pineapple." We believe she is referring to the bald eagle, freedom of religion, and hospitality (which the pineapple symbolizes).

Lindy took her first dip in her new Wal-Mart wading pool and sported a very stylin' bathing suit. We'll let her wear the two-piece now, but not for long!

Due to some much needed rain and the holiday being in the middle of the week, we did not take Lindy to see any fireworks. Maybe next year...

For two people who love America as much as we do, we hope someday Lindy will cherish being an American. We never want her to be ashamed of her Chinese heritage, but hope the events of July 4, 1776 will have special significance to her.

Loved the Patriotic Little Miss Lindy pictures. Hope you'll always try to make it significant for her and that she'll always show the joy and happiness on this holiday that these pictures portrayed. Love to you all...Mom/Grandma Caples
