For the fourth we went out to Carnation to spend time with my parents, caren and Jason before he leaves for Alaska. I love the fourth of July especially in Carnation. I didn't do the 5k this year and I'm kind of wishing I did, but we watched the parade, went swimming in the river, played in the sprinkler, had a bbq and watched fireworks.
Jason got a new puppy and we were so excited to see him. Meet Finn, he is the cutest.
Carter loved him and luckily he was a very calm and patient puppy so they made good playmates. Carter kept trying to feed him rocks though and Finn would lick his tummy and make him laugh.
Watching the parade. Carter did not like the waiting part but he LOVED the cars and trucks. He was not interested in anything else, just kept asking for cars and said gone when he couldn't see any.
Loving the firetrucks
So...we watched fireworks from a window, but Carter loved it so that's ok. We were gonna leave him behind and go but he woke up just as we were leaving so we thought we would take him along but then he screamed and refused to sit in his carseat...so we stayed home. Not the best view of fireworks I've had, but we made it work and Carter liked it. Next year we will just keep him up to watch them.
