Our Fourth was extra special this year since it was our first big holiday as a family of four & Avalon's first celebration of many, many to come. :) We were so excited to deck her out in some red, white & blue and bring her along for all of the festivities. Of course, girlfriend slept through most of them, but we forgave her since she looked so damn cute while doing it, plus I know it will be no time before she's running around with her older sister during this holiday next year. Crazy.

And then, the fireworks. We had been going back & forth about whether we would even attempt them, mainly because Waverly hated them last year and we ended up being the only people in the city driving away from the beach as they were going off. We had been telling her about them (& showing her videos online) for a couple weeks, one day she loved them and couldn't wait to go, the next she hated them and would cry if we even mentioned it. Toddlers. ;) We went to my parents for dinner, they live really close to the beach so we figured we could just walk both girls down there if Waverly seemed into it, which long story short, she didn't, so we left to drive home.
Both girls were crying (screaming) the entire drive, Waverly because she was tired (too much partying) & still thinking about fireworks, Avalon because she hates the car seat (like really, really hates it). My milk was leaking from Avalon crying, plus I had spit-up all over me, because, I have a newborn. ;) The fireworks started going off during our circus of a car drive & we couldn't help but laugh, happy freaking fourth of july. ;)
This is definitely life now, good thing we wouldn't change it for anything.
