Yankee Doodle

The 4th came & went in a wet mess! I started out as a beautiful day & ended in a wet wonderland. We had our friends & neighbors Wes and Elise over for dinner. I cooked out steaks, potatoes, grilled veggies & corn, green beans, & rolls...not to mention a salad. :) The meal was just delicious & want I needed to celebrate the 4th. As soon as they turned the grill off the rain begin to fall. It was a downpour for hours. It never cleared off in time for the fireworks in Providence.

Owen only had an hour nap on the 4th & was flat worn out! He fell asleep on our bed @ 8 and didn't wake up till the next morning. All-in-all it was a wonderful, but tiring day. I cant wait till next year to do it all again.

Since the 4th was a washout, they decided to have the fireworks on the 5th. Yeah!!! We were worried that O would be scared of the fireworks, but Oh! how he ♥ LOVED ♥ them! He kept on saying "look at the balls" when they would explode in the sky.

This was taken while we were waiting for the fireworks. He danced to the Wiggles on the porch.

Daddy & Owen watching the fireworks.
He was so excited to watch them! Can't you tell by the HUGE smile on his face!

Today I was on my weight to weigh in @ WW and passed the Krispy Kreme of all things & the light was on. DANGER!!! I mentioned it to O and all I heard was "I want a donut"! Thanks! The whole time I was at WW he was saying that. What a combo huh? Needless to say we went to Krispy Kreme. If you are wondering, I DIDNT have a single one :) Only coffee!

How cute is he?

Owen loved watching the donuts being made. He said "cool".
