The 4th of July!

Wednesday, July 04, 2007
Busy day! Bike ride in the morning, swimming in the afternoon, naps, then we had a BBQ at our house. Landon's parents and Gay came over. We had fruit, hamburgers, salad, and ice cream. Our neighborhood is a big party scene on the 4th. Everyone has 4th of July parties, then watches the fireworks from our neighborhood. Mike & Susan left early, since they had to get up for work the next morning, but Gay came with us to watch the fireworks, and we actually all got invited onto a deck overlooking the Willamette, and got a panoramic view of the entire city & all the fireworks going off all over NE & SE Portland. Samuel was pretty scared, and clutched Landon's neck during most of the show, but as time went on, and the noisemakers being set off in the streets gave way to actual fireworks in the distance, he relaxed much more. His neighborhood friend Maddy helped with that, too! Samuel called the fireworks "fireworms," because they looked like worms to him in the sky. He makes worms in various colors w/ his play-dough set, so the fireworks must have looked similar to him. Happy 4th of July, everyone!
P.S. Happy 31st Anniversary, Mom & Dad!

Fireworms! How cute! We had Aaron & Holly Cole with us and their little guy (two days older than Hunter) watched in amazement for the half-hour show --- with his fingers in his ears! It was so cute!
