Red, White and Blue! July 7, 2013

Filed under: Baby,Family,Friends — Kelocity @ 8:14 pm

We had an amazing four-day weekend over here! We started off not having any plans, and ended up having a lot of fun filling in our days as went.

On Thursday, the Fourth of July, we woke up early and headed out to march in our neighborhood parade. Adele somehow slept through the whole thing– marching band, drums and all.

I know, I know, mom fail… who puts their kid in GREEN on July 4th?! I realized my mistake and quickly changed her into a more patriotic outfit.

This was a hand-me-down outfit that I am so in love with. Patchwork Patriotism on a baby. Is there anything cuter?

We grilled up some chicken kabobs with onions, peppers and pineapple and served it with rice for lunch. It was a wonderfully lazy afternoon, we just relaxed, enjoyed lunch, and got some good quality time in.

In the evening, we headed to a friends house for a BBQ! It was an awesome spread of food and even better company. We had a great time, thanks Caitlin and Howard!

We headed back home before sunset, gave Adele a bath and started getting her ready for bed. But at the last minute, I decided to keep up up just a little bit later and we snuck off to our roof around 9p to watch the fireworks! We saw a few and then called it a night. Adele promptly passed out as soon as her head hit the pillow mattress.
