We went into the city yesterday to celebrate (they did it a day early this year, not sure why).
I had the bright idea to get some take-out from Olive Garden and eat in the park so we could get there early and get great parking. The second we got our food spread out and ready to eat on the picnic table, the clear sky turned gray and I knew what was going to happen. We made it to the car just in time, and instead had a car-picnic in the pouring down rain. Definitely not as nice as the table outside, but it was an adventure. ;)
When we were done eating, the rain stopped as well, so we went out to the park to play...

In turn, she forgot my tendency to be terrified of them, and came towards me with an, "aww, look how cute" on her lips. My scream (an instant reaction) and immediate recoil reminded her, and the light in her eyes was priceless as she and her little brother (who just learned mom was scared of frogs) walked closer and closer, laughing and being general braaaaaaaaaaaaats. ;) Thankfully, she's really a kind soul (whew) and put the frog back by the water. I can't say the same for my little one who was all about the giggles and 'put it on mom' phrases. -_-
Besides that rare brush with fear, terror, and mom screaming, we had a great trip.
The rain left as fast as it came, and the rest of the night had perfect weather and some great fireworks too.
Today we're staying home and firing up the grill. I love when hubby does the cooking. :)
Happy 4th to you if you're celebrating, and happy Thursday if you're not. :)
