I was a teeny bit better on the actual 4th of July. I even took a video!
Notice his hand? What's up with that?
We made it to the parade!
Of course, when we get to the parade my camera's battery light starts flashing. Super. I'm ready for pictures and the camera is going to die! So I had to be selective on my picture taking.
It was quite the parade. We saw all kinds of animals... lots of dogs festively dressed, clowns, firetrucks, bicycles. But my favorites....
Oh, these weren't the only goats at the parade. There was even one goat pulling a little wagon with two boys in it!
And what would a parade be without chickens in a cage! Yes, folks, those are 3 real live chickens in that cage. Not sure the purpose, but it sure was fun!
He even pet 2 horses! My camera died right after the above picture was taken, so I have none of Jaxon petting the horses. My friend, Jana, took some so when she sends them to me I'll post them. He was SOOO excited! He was very tentative at first, but once he saw that I didn't get hurt or bitten by the horse he was all over it! After the first one he would yell, "Hoase stoooooppp! I pet you! Stoooooop I need to pet you!" to every. single. horse. that walked by. And let me tell you, there were at least 30!
After the parade, Jax took a nice long nap and then we headed to the pool.
Check out his swim trunks!
We stayed until after the pool closed and the staff decided to blow stuff up! Well, not really, but someone did throw an M-80 into the pool and the sound was deafening!
Not scared here.
We headed home to end the night quietly in our backyard.
But what's the real 4th of July without sparklers!
Finally, a smile for the camera! Maybe next time he'll look and smile!
Trying to get a family picture, but Jax walked off talking about "tooting" just as Brian snapped the picture. Boys!
Happy Independence Day, America!
