Fourth of July Recap

I hope everyone had a fabulous 4th of July! We got to celebrate our baby girls FIRST fourth.
On Tuesday night we walked around the lake and got a spot to watch the boat parade. In my parents neighborhood, they decorate their boats for the fourth of July and have music, food trucks, and a boat parade. I was surprised at the turnout considering the 4th landed in the middle of the week this year. Since it doesn't get dark till after 8:30, the parade didn't start until 9 (Which is after Kenzie's normal 8:30 bedtime, but she was a trooper and stayed up to watch it. She ended up falling asleep on the way back to the house. I will call that a win)

On Wednesday, we headed over to my parents house to make breakfast and spend the day with them. I made pancakes, eggs, and bacon. Kenzie even got some pancakes of her own.
After breakfast I was exhausted for some reason so I took a little nap. When I woke up, we took Kenz swimming. She loves the water so much so I knew she would have fun! She loves splashing the water.

I celebrated and drank a beer. Whoo hoo! I know, it's not an "American" beer, but it's all I had available at the time. I wasn't complaining. After swimming we ate some snacks-- 7 layer dip (I shared the recipe here), stuffed jalapenos, and  fruit. What is it about snacking on Holidays? I may have over-indulged a little too much and a light salad is on today's menu...

We BBQ'd Ribs, corn on the cobb and had my favorite beef rice pilaf for dinner.  It was the perfect end to a perfect, relaxing day.  My baby girl has been teething pretty bad, so she wasn't the normal happy baby. She ended up projectile vomiting all over when I tried putting her down for bed. Luckily I was there and she didn't choke on it, but I felt so bad and was scared for her. She's never done this before but I think the teething definitely hasn't helped. (Or she just partied way too hard?-- totally kidding) So if you have a life changing teething solving method, please share!!!!!!

She's been feeling so much better today thankfully and she is celebrating being 9 months old! I'll share about that tomorrow, so until then, here is an adorable photo of her:

How did you spend your 4th? I would love to hear about it.  How do you feel about it being on a Wednesday this year? Did that interrupt your normal plans?
