We had a nice 4th of July. Blaine got to enjoy a round of golf, while the rest of us took it pretty easy. Ava and I were recovering from being sick all week. I just had a deluxe summer cold, and Ava's cold turned into a deluxe double ear infection. So she got her first antibiotic, FUN. Ava is trying so hard to crawl and sometimes manages to do a kind of army crawl. I'm afraid she's going to be into everything when she starts moving. She is so curious. Now back to the 4th. Roberta's birthday is on the 4th, so we had a birthday dinner for her and everyone else's birthdays that we had missed lately. Yum! Home cooked ribs, potato salad, salad, corn-on-the-cob, and yes, homemade ice cream and from scratch chocolate cupcakes. Ashlyn and Alyssa ran around the backyard with their cousins and had a ball. After dinner, we took off to see the fireworks from my cousin Ambra's house (she conveniently lives two houses from the park right by where they shoot off the fireworks). Again the girls played with their cousins, and loved the fireworks. Ashlyn could be heard above the fireworks exclaiming, "Whoa", "That's so cool", "I love it", and "Coralynn come sit by me". She was so excited. Ava also watched the entire show. Every time she would hear the boom. She would kick her legs. After fireworks, we ate more ice cream and cake, got the girls dressed for bed, and headed home. All was quiet by the time we got home at 11:30.
