Fourth of July

We went to Granny & Pap Pap's for a cookout on the fourth. Daniel didn't eat much, but we made up for it, for sure! Of course Daniel had fun with Jade and Patrick, and watched SpongeBob in Granny and Pap Pap's bedroom nearly the whole time as usual.

Of course, on the way over to Granny's, Daniel decided to give Mama a heart attack by totally unbuckling himself from his car seat. We may had never realized it if he hadn't leaned forward and stuck his head between the two front seats to see what was going on. I about ran off of I295!

I got off on US17 and pulled into a gas station where Randall re-secured Daniel and then we were on our way again, and Daniel stayed out, thank goodness.

The only thing Daniel did was say "Oh, Thank you, Daddy."

We stopped at Publix on the way home and picked up some sparklers and snakes, so when we got home and lit the sparklers and burned some back snakes on the driveway. Daniel was in awe. Next year should be a real riot with the fireworks which I plan to make a point to go see.

Then our new neighbors Chris and Jo asked us over to watch him shoot off the fireworks that he bought. Daniel loved the ones that were all sparkly, and didn't even mind the noise, unlike baby Leland, who defiantly did not like the noisy ones!

It was a long evening though - Daniel was work out so bad that he cried while I changed him for bed and was asleep less than 15 minutes after we walked back inside. It was a happy fourth!

I can't believe he unbuckled himself! Crazy boy!

It looks like you guys had fun. I've never seen those snake things, I'll have to look for them next year.
