It was a fairly quiet fourth of July around the house. No company, no barbeques, no homemade ice cream--just the three of us doing "weekend" stuff.
We were thrilled to get a MUCH-needed rain shower. Lindy was so excited, she asked if she could go play in the rain. My first instinct was, "uh NO." However, since it was such a welcomed sight I let her go stand in it. She was overjoyed to be out in it.
After we got her all dried off, we visited our friends whose dog recently had puppies. Lindy loves dogs so seeing puppies was a big treat for her. Daddy stayed strong and didn't succumb to Lindy's joy and the teensy bit of salesmanship taking place. Here she is holding "Gregory."
After puppies, we went to have a good old-fashioned burger and fries for dinner and then headed off to stake a place to watch fireworks. While we were waiting for it to get dark, we walked around the Shops at La Cantera and enjoyed the lovely weather. Thankfully, the rain had cooled it down quite a bit and made it very comfortable.
This was the first time we had taken Lindy to see fireworks. As we waited she was very excited for them to start but a bit apprehensive because she knew what they were from Ni Hao Kai-Lan. Once they started, she did great and really seemed to love them. I heard her exclaim several times, "they are soooo beautiful!" This morning, that's all I hear her chattering about, so I think they were a hit for our own little firecracker!
