Madeline’s first Fourth of July was a blast (hahaha – see what I did there)!
We went over to my mom’s house and spent the day with her, my sister, Cathy; my brother-in-law, Jeff; my niece, Kelsey: and her friend, Jim.
I made pasta salad, a veggie salad, brownies, and homemade ice cream. We had hotdogs and burgers on the grill – a very traditional American cookout.
And then, of course, we had fireworks. We bought Madeline some Baby Banz ear muffs so that she could be outside with us without having to worry about the loud noises hurting her ears or scaring her. I just wore her in the Ergo and put her ear muffs on and she fell asleep while we watched Patrick and Jim blow up stuff.
Before she fell asleep, Madeline was intrigued by the pretty fountains and seemed to enjoy watching all of the sparkle. I can’t wait until she is big enough to ohh and ahh over the fireworks in a couple of years.
