Parades and Fireworks, Oh My!

Yesterday Sophia celebrated her very first 4th of July! It started out with us getting up ridiculously early and heading out to Melbourne to participate in their 4th of July parade, and to support Mitch Needelman in the election coming up next month. 

Unfortunately, it was just too dang hot out to walk 2 miles with Sophia, so she and I rode in the airconditioned truck that was pulling the sign. Afterwards we were invited to a nice lunch at Applebees,

We returned home to a HUGE storm with hail and Douglas and I went to pick up David who'd been out kayaking, before the storm hit him. Unfortunately we got there too late and he was SOAKED. Poor guy. 

Later after the boys went home to shower and change, David, Douglas, Nick and I went up to Port Orange for a YUMmy Red Robin dinner, followed by a lovely, uncrowded fireworks display. :) Needless to say by the time we got home, I was ready to crash. But all in all, a good day!


  1. You're looking fantastic Erin! That's a great picture of you and Sophia. Sounds like you had a great day. :)
