Happy 4th of July!

Happy (belated) 4th of July!

We started our holiday weekend out early by watching fireworks on the night of the 3rd. Clayton LOVED them. He kept saying, "Awesome!" "This is so neat!" and (my personal favorite) "How cool is that?!?!" We were in a really good spot to see them - they were right over our heads. Unfortunately, with the great view came really loud booms. Clayton and I spent much of the time covering our ears. Prior to the fireworks, there were all kinds of activities and things for kids to do. Clayton's favs were getting a sticker badge from a real policeman and getting to meet "Uncle Sam" (a man in patriotic gear walking on stilts). He kept saying, "That man was ginormous!"

Totally in awe..

It seemed to get louder as the show went on.

On Friday we headed to Houston to spend the weekend with my parents, sister, and brother-in-law. We watched more fireworks (Clayton just can't get enough), ate A LOT, swam, and played. It was a fun weekend!
