Happy 4th of July! - 2011

We had a great 4th of July! We started at the Highlands Ranch Parade. We meant to be on-time so that Weston could ride his bike in the Bike/Pet parade, but we weren't very good parents this year. We still let him ride around before the big parade started. He was a little slow to grab the candy getting thrown, but luckily the kids around us started to notice and either shared or helped him:)

We already for Uncle Tony to come back and visit again!

I love this picture- An unsuccessful trip to grab candy (But seriously, look at his competition)

Success! A little boxing out help from Daddy!

Then we headed over to the town center for the festivities and breakfast!

Weston did both of these a couple of times. The T-ball took him a few shots to get the hang of it, but on his second turn he hit almost all of them (even if a few were on the back swing;)

That evening we went up to Arvada to celebrate with family. We went to the park for fireworks and spread out a wagon worth of treats and played some crochet and football until it got dark (pictures to come...I forgot my camera) Weston was in heaven with the wagon full of candy. I think he ate more candy that night than in the rest of his life put together. He loved pulling it around and taking whatever he pleased from it!

After the firework show we went back and did a few of our own:

Giant Sparklers! Weston was a little too comfortable with these. As I was trying to get his picture he decided to start chasing me with the sparkler.

SNAPS! - Stepping on them seemed to work best:)
