Happy 4th of July 2007!

This was Alexa's first Independence Day so we took her to her first fireworks show on Saturday night. Keeping her up past her bedtime of 7:00 wasn't very easy. We let her take a late nap, but you could tell she was wondering what she was doing still awake. She seemed to handle the fireworks okay though. She got a little fussy...but I think that had more to do with being tired than being scared. We went with our friends, Ben and Waveney Taylor and their kids Rhys and Sydney. Then, yesterday, on the 4th we had dinner with our friends, Kirk and Amanda Graves. I made my 4th of July cake that has become a tradition in our family. Alexa looked adorable in her red, white and blue outfit and we thought the "I'm Independent" on her shirt suited her quite nicely!! She's a sweet little girl...but is really starting to show her personality. Happy Independence Day!
