Celebrating the 4th

We enjoyed our 4th of July weekend. In the morning, we headed over to Galveston to enjoy the beach before it got too busy. It was good timing because by the time we left, the traffic heading into town was crazy. We had a good time there; as usual Aydan was content playing in the sand while Kenzie played in the waves with Dad, and I layed out relaxing. When we got home from the beach, we got cleaned up to get ready to go to the park in the evening for some different things they had going on. There were some inflatables for the kids to play on, a band, and food stands. They also had clowns and an astronaut handing out autographed photos. Kenzie was able to get one of those pictures so that will be neat for her to keep for a long time.

Since we live so close to the water, we were able to see the fireworks from the yard behind our building, which was nice that we didn't have to go far. We had a nice view and you could see 2 other fire works shows from where we were. The weather was great; it ended up cooling down enough that we could enjoy sitting outside.

Here's Kenzie with one of the clowns making her a lady bug bracelet balloon.

This is the astronaut, Michael Massimino, signing autographs.
