Happy Fourth of July. Sorry we're a bit behind on our blogging, our 'Month of Fun'* has just been so much fun. As one might expect, these next few posts will inlcude many photos, so sorry to those of you who don't enjoy a lengthy post.
The Fourth of July is double the fun in our family because it is also Nathan's birthday. So first, a Happy Birthday shout out to him. We love you honey/Dad.
Last year our Fourth was pretty low key because I was super pregnant, and it was super hot and muggy in New York City. So this year we really went for it with the celebration activities.
We started the day with an early morning hike with Laura and Bret. It should be noted that this was Norah's first hike.
Then we walked in our first Fourth of July parade, joining in with Norah's cousins (cousin Lily seen below) and dozens of other kids on their decked out bikes, scooters, etc., as well as people in golf carts, on horseback, 4-wheelers, motorcycles, a fire engine, police cars, someone pulling a handcart, a dude on stilts, and a man dressed in colonial garb carrying a musket. Quite the Fourth of July hodge podge. Norah thoroughly enjoyed herself.
The rest of the day was spent partying (and eating) like it was the Fourth of July.
