4th of July

We went to the city parade in the morning. It was really all the local kids (and a few adults) who decorated thier bikes and wagons (and animals). They threw candy out at the crowds.


Hannah was confused. Why did that kid just throw candy at me?

But then she didn't care. Hey. She got to try her first Starburst. And she liked it.
(PS check out our new double stroller! I'm lovin' it!)


After the parade we went to the local Depot Park where they had free jump-o-lines!


And free pony rides!






Rachel didn't care about all the crowds. She was too busy browsing through the diaper bag.






"She's touching me!"

At night we went to see the fireworks in Bellevue. They started at 10pm but we took the girls anyway.

Hannah really enjoyed the fireworks even though she looks like she's miserable in this photo. She kept telling me she wasn't scared and she would say "ooohh!" and "aaahhh!" and commented on all the pretty colors. She also kept counting from 1 to 20. I'm still not sure why. When we ask her about the fireworks she says "remember Hannah counted the fireworks Mommy?" Yes, baby. I remember.
Dan was holding Rachel and he said she just stared and stared. We think she liked them. It was a happy 4th!

At the "2 year old" Park

This was a post I did 2 months ago, but forgot to hit the "publish" button. Since all the hard part was already done...here it is.









There is a little park just a few blocks away that we like to walk to. Hannah calls it the 2-year old park because the sign says that it is for children who are 2 years old.

Whenever Hannah drives it is always to the "hostible" to get some "rickolish." I'm not sure why she thinks that is what the hospital is for, but aparently she does.
