Celebrating the 4th of July!

I am back in the game with this blogging stuff. As you know by now, I am not as dedicated with this as some of you are, but I will do my best to keep up. Mason is 19 months now and so much fun! He is such a big helper in many different ways, even when he is not really helping. It is amazing to see his mind at work. It seems that each day he is saying a new word. This age is lots of fun, but I know it keeps getting better.

This morning we were in a 4th of July parade that Mike's parents' neighborhood put on. We decorated Mason's red car up with streamers, flags, wire stars, and coke cans dragging behind the car. Unfortunately, it was so windy that my dad (Pops) had to cut the coke cans off because they got wrapped around the back right tire as soon as the parade got underway. It was the thought that counted. There was no prize for the most decorated car, but if there was, Mason would have won! It was pretty hot and Mason's allergies just started acting up yesterday, so he was not in the best of moods. In fact, he did not even want to ride in his car, which is a first. So we all took turns carrying him down the various streets of the sub-division. Mallory (Mason's cousin) decided that she should sit in his car because she was tired of walking and he was not about to use it. Towards the end of the parade, Mason decided that he had had enough of the sun, so Nonny (Mike's mom) took him back to Poppy's (Mike's dad) truck in the air conditioning. If you noticed, that is the only picture that Mason is smiling in. Poppy was never too far away because we were not sure how any of the grandkids would do for the length of the parade. All in all, we had fun and this will go down in the scrapbook as one of our many memories we make as a family!

I hope today was as memorable for you as it was for us. Happy 4th of July and I hope you enjoy the fireworks!
