I hope everybody has had a blast this weekend! My 4th was all right...but it could have been better give or take a few things. I'll tell you about how we spent the 4th, but first thing's first. This week as I explained in the monthly goals consisted of Sofia wearing cute patriotic outfits. She was the cutest thing ever and while I'm pretty sure Papi and Mom were tired of seeing her in those same colors all week long, Mommy wasn't and I was all too happy to get pictures of her to show you all.
So without further ado...
What an overabundance of patriotic clothing right? I honestly have no idea where they all came from but seeing as Sofia is just growing like a weed every day...I took the opportunity to dress her up and all of them. The pictures came out great even if I had to tell Sofia to constantly show me her teeth in order to get a smile. #photographermomproblems
So onto the holiday! Sadly Juan had to work on the 4th of July holiday so it was just my mom, Sofia and myself for the majority of the day. I really needed a new 4th of July shirt; my Old Navy one from 2011 just wasn't cutting it anymore so we headed to Old Navy to see if they had any.
I wasn't surprised- those shirts are pretty popular. Sofia got one from my sis so she was set for the day and I managed to get a nice shirt for only $5. Good start to the day. After Old Navy we went to the mall to let Sofia play around in the play area and to spend some time. My cousin Audia graduated from the Ogle School so we celebrated at On the Border. I was a little disappointed that there wasn't any barbecue to eat that day but I still got a good barbacoa enchilada plate that made me happy and a nice margarita too.
We then went to my mom's best friend's house where we partied to some oldies and then I participated in the longest UNO game in existence. Nobody won that game cause we were too busy wondering who's turn it was or what rules were what. I swear the rules to that game change all the time.
Before I knew it though...it was time for us to go to see the fireworks. We used to have just one set area to watch them but lately we've been just trying to catch them in time wherever we can. This year we went to a bridge to watch a couple of shows. It would have felt like a better place had it not been spider infested and right on the side of a somewhat busy road. Still we were able to see some of them. I totally missed the finale of the fireworks show while trying to get music together for us. So that was also a disappointment. But as long as Sofia got to see them, I was happy. We ended our night singing "God Bless the USA" and "Happy Birthday to You" really loud and waving our huge flags. It was sad that Juan couldn't make it to the fireworks with us but we made it work regardless.
I love the 4th and even though this wasn't the best one ever...I know there are many more to come that are going to be even better. Here is Sofia and myself in past years.
What did you all do on your holiday? I can't wait to find out!
