For the holiday we checked out some of the festivities that were happening at a nearby park in the neighborhood, and then we headed to the big celebration in Round Rock (just outside of Austin). We weren't sure how Rose would hold up outdoors for most of the day, but thankfully it wasn't too hot and she did great!
|We watched a ventriloquist under this tent.|
|BBQ picnic. yummmm. Rose is just chillin on the blanket.|
|This would've been a great picture if Rose hadn't started to spit up right when Jacob took the shot. Too funny not to post.|
|Jacob showing her the animals at the petting zoo. Rose is unimpressed.|
|We found a nice shady spot near the lake to hang out for the evening. Rose napped peacefully in her stroller.|
|a whole parade of skydivers came soaring over us, and landed right in the park!|
|DAD IS SO FUNNY!!! *scary smile face*|
|Me and Rose... oh and Mia.|
The fireworks show was great. The park coordinated their showed with the show going on at a nearby baseball stadium. So basically there were fireworks shooting off on both sides of us--over the lake and from the baseball stadium. And to make it even better, there was a live orchestra playing patriotic tunes through it all. Rose seemed pretty dazzled by it all...
until, of course, she fell asleep...
|She was pretty tuckered out after a long day of festivities.|
Great day to be an American.
Great day to be a family.
