Independence Day

Time once again to celebrate the independence of the country by allowing all the neighborhood children to run around unsupervised with small explosives during the late hours of the evening.

We start our celebration of the 4th of July by dressing Hailey in a stylish patriotic ensemble. To accessorize Hailey’s outfit, Brianna attempts a white bow in Hailey’s very fine hair. The bow lasted only long enough to capture the video.

As you can see, Hailey is sitting up in her walker quite nicely. She has also discovered that if she bangs her left hand on the star, the walker will play a touching rendition of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. The touching part of that rendition wears off somewhere near the 1,000th playing. As soon as I find the battery it is becoming lost.

We spent the afternoon in Thorndale, Texas eating good old American food. Hailey stayed for the night and Brianna and I returned to our home. The entire neighborhood put on quite a spectacular fireworks show. I went outside around 9:00 p.m. and in every direction I looked I saw exploding ordinances.
