On Saturday Abby and I were up and out early to the Mal hoping to catch some sales. We did a little bit but the deals could have been better. As is now par for the course Abby scored the new items that day. (She is way more fun to buy for then me anyways)
Our 4th of July celebration took place at a cookout given by Aunt Elizabeth's parents. They live smack on the York River and right across the river from where the Yorktown fireworks are set off. After a good dinner we all set up camp on the banks of the river and waited for the show. We had a great view and because they were set off across the river from us they weren't to loud. Abby probably thought they were never going to start but once they did she liked them. The show was probably 20 to 30 minutes though so her interest kind of dwindled at the end. She did a lot of seat hopping. Once they were done it was almost 10 PM so we headed out only to sit in traffic. It took us an hour and 10 minutes for what usually is a 15 min or so ride home. Oh well. Totally worth it cuz we had a great time. Best of all we had Sissy (my niece) come home with us. Sissy got up with Abby this morning and fed her and kept her entertained while I SLEPT IN!!!!! I haven't slept in for almost a year. Today I slept till almost 11 AM. Sissy I really owe you one. It was AWESOME!!!! Sissy spent the day with us today as well. It was rainy so we stayed in but she and Abby had a blast. Sissy Abby asked for you all evening tonight :) Thank You!!! We love you :) Now enjoy the pictures :) First up is the very festive Cousin Josh.
