Our 4th of July was a full day with lots of fun!
Savannah and I drove 2.5 hours to Ikea, where we spent the day shopping for
Hadley's nursery/big girl bedroom.
We bought curtains, picture frames, book shelves, and nightstands for her room:
About an hour after Savannah and I got home,
Tal and I took Savannah to her first baseball game!
We cheered for a local minor-league baseball team:
We had great seats along the first base line:
Savannah and Tal
For dinner, we ate ballpark food:
hot dogs, nachos, Cracker Jacks, boiled peanuts,
and a sno cone...all healthy food of course!
Our family was having a great time at the game, but we had to leave
at the bottom of the 6th inning when Tal got sick:
We sat in the truck and listened to the remainder of the game on the radio:
The Carolina Mudcats won 7-6 in extra innings:
After the game ended at 10:45 P.M., the fireworks started,
and we watched them in the parking lot in Tal's truck:
This is the first year that Savannah wasn't afraid of the sound of the fireworks.
Savannah kept saying, "I'm not afraid of the fireworks.
When I was a baby, I was scared, but I'm a big girl now."
Savannah "oohed" and "awed" during the entire show.
I love the pictures below because they really capture how excited
Savannah was to see the fireworks. She clapped her hands and pointed to the fireworks:
Savannah liked the glittery fireworks the best.
Savannah loved staying up past her bedtime, and our family had a great time
celebrating the 4th of July with baseball and fireworks.
We were exhausted, though, when we got home at midnight:
