Fourth of July Festivities

So Friday night we packed it all up and headed out. I volunteered to drive since the hubs has quite a commute everyday. We decided to stop for some dinner to hopefully wait out the traffic and by the time we got officially got on the road there was no traffic at all and it was smooth sailing. We made it to Brigantine in great time and spent the rest of the evening hanging out on the back porch with some cold beers and great laughs.

Mags was up the next morning at 5:30 (because of a poopy diaper), which was a little rough on Mommy and Daddy, who hadn't gone to bed until 12:30am. So after some Dunkin Donuts coffee recharging, we headed out to the beach. Mags had a great time in her little pool and really enjoyed standing with the assistance of Daddy and his chair (Standing= favorite new pastime). I actaully got to go in the water..A. because it was so nice and warm and B. because I had people to go in the water with (hubs does not do the ocean water). It was so nice and relaxing, just what I needed.

We had a delicious dinner and afterwards, we went to a little ice cream shop, Steak and Shake, for the first time. It was spectacular, and it had a very extensive menu, which of course means that we will have to visit it multiple times to try everything...oh the horror.

That night was a little rough for the Magster. We think that she is working on another tooth on the bottom, evidenced by the fact that she is constantly sucking on her bottom gum and exploring it with her tongue. Again, not a lot of sleep was had for any of us.

Sitting in her very own rocking chair!

Sunday we had a quiet day because the weather wasn't that great.

Second 4th outfit because of a little accident. But look...after the super icky diaper and a nap, we have a much happier photo subject!!!

We had a BBQ in the afternoon and the weather decided to clear up for that, thankfully. But then literally as we were finishing our last bites, the skies began to darken and the thunder began to roll. We left in a whirlwind and only hit a couple of patches of the storm on our way home. We also got to see a couple fireworks from the road, which was nice.

Yesterday, we relaxed and re-cooped, because although our weekend was fun, the lack of sleep was tough. But overall, a great time! No parades or fireworks for Mags this year, but next year that is most assuredly on the agenda.

How was your 4th? Hope you had a great one!
