Happy 4th of July!

We had a wonderful and ambitious 4th of July! We started out the day with a bang by attending (and participating in) our neighborhood's annual Fourth of July parade and party. The neighborhood gets two big In-n-Out trucks to come and serve burgers, fries, and sodas. We reconnected with some of our neighbors and had a great time hanging out.

Then we went to a pool party at Hillary's house. There were lots of babies and toddlers there- it was really fun. Paprika loved swimming in the pool and even got to experience a bit of independence in the water by floating around on an infant floatie.

After that we went over to Hoot's house for a big afternoon/evening cook-out. There were lots of little babies at the party, but Paprika was the only girl! Around 9 p.m., we all walked about one block from Hoot's house over to a ridge overlooking the Rose Bowl and watched a spectacular fireworks show. Paprika was in awe of the fireworks and stayed awake through the whole thing. Afterwards, she immediately fell asleep. She was super tired from her very first 4th of July!
