4th of July

Ava looked all red, white, & blue for the forth of July! We had a great breakfast with Grandpa Kolkman at the Cracker Barrel. Then we met up with our neighbors and friends at the Barksdales for the parade. It was fun taking Ava into Grandville for her first parade because it was also my first parade! Traditions need to be set early.

Not sure how Ava slept through the entire parade... It was so Loud! Next year she is going to be diving in the street for candy. I just know it!

We had a great lunch at Rick and Sally's after the parade. Thanks Barksdale's for having Ava and I over for your independence day lunch. It was delicious. Rob had been gone on a fishing trip this week so we were excited to get home and see him and hear about his trip. We spent the afternoon relaxing at home before the evening festivities.

We ate dinner cookout style at the Arnoldink's. Then, Rob and I took Ava to the Allendale fireworks with our friends and neighbors of Cozy Acres. I didn't think she was going to like them... So we cuddled up in Rob's Ava-lanch and she fell asleep. Mom's arms are magic! She never made a peep the entire firework's show. Can I say out like a light. We took her home and tucked her in. Sweet dreams. All in all... Ava's first forth of July was a hit!
