I hope everyone had a spectacular Fourth of July. For us the holiday gave a well needed excuse to go out and socialize with our long lost friends! Little Bear, Hubby, and myself spent the day at our friend’s house with them and another couple who also have a new baby.
It was so nice to just get out of the house and spend time with friends that it didn’t even matter that it was a holiday. Seems like forever since we’ve had any semblance of a social life. Of course, with another baby at the party most of the conversation (for the girls at least) centered around our children…how they’re developing, what labor was like…you know, typical party topics!
It was the first time Little Bear had ever seen another baby that was close to his age (she was five months old). He isn’t quite to the “other babies fascinate me” stage but she sure was! The little miss attempted to have several “baby stare downs” but my little man was much more interested in flirting with her mommy. Apparently, he likes the older ladies. And when the other mommy took a turn holding him, he sure was a happy boy!
Little Bear and Little Miss were so adorable in their matching outfits! Everyone looked very patriotic. A good time was had by all, and we managed to be out of the house from 11 to 5pm before Little Bear decided that this party was over and he needed to go home NOW!!! Unfortunately we did not make it to see any fireworks, but Hubby and I were exhausted by the time they were starting to go off anyway. I have a feeling…due to someone’s early bed time…that it might actually be another year or two before we get to enjoy that particular part of the Fourth of July! There were snaps and blow guns at our friend’s house though, so Hubby did get to shoot something at least (ah, life in the South, where a day with friends isn’t complete without shooting a gun!).
I hope everyone had as good a day as we did!
