Micah's First Fourth!

For the past 4 years we've been going to a local carnival and fireworks show with our friends and their kids. We always had so much fun - Kevin would ride the rides with our friends' kids, stand in line for hours for a funnel cake, and we would all gather for the fireworks. We always left and thought how much fun it would be to have our own little one there - especially last year when we already had Micah's picture and were waiting for our court date.

So, we were very excited to take Micah to his first 4th of July celebration at the same carnival. And, the great part is that he is old enough to enjoy it a little bit - he even rode a few rides! (He's so big - he's like a big boy now, not a baby. We like to call him our giant baby :)

Here are my favorite pictures from the night...

We used a lollipop again - we were having sushi (which is great to take to these sorts of things) and he had finished his dinner already... so lollipop for dessert! He was pretty happy about it...

Micah also had funnel cake for the first time...

"mmmm.... funnel cake"

He also rode the cars - I was pretty happy that he loved it so much. At one point he was bouncing up and down in his seat. (Thanks to S sitting next to him for making sure he didn't decide to climb out during the ride.)

(Lori - do you have a caption for this one? I know you do!)

And, in case you want to see all the fun... that's right - a slide show! (Oh - and I don't have any cool firework pictures to post because I basically just watched Micah watching the fireworks - Isn't it great that once you have children you'd rather watch their faces while seeing something amazing than to actually see the something amazing? :)

Hope you all had a safe & happy holiday!!


  1. What a great time! How big Micah is getting to be able to share in all the fun :)

  2. "Mmmm...funnel cake"..I laughed out loud on that one. In my head it sounds like Homer saying, "".

  3. The funnel cake pictures looks a bit like maybe it was spiked?!? Too cute!

  4. How cute he is!!!I love the funnel cake pic!!!
