Independence Day

We had a great day today!  My dad and I took Xander to the Zoo and we got to feed the giraffes!  Talk about a great life experience!

Afterwards we grilled out with Brice and spent the afternoon hanging out.

I have been reading to Xander about our flag and origins.  My dad and I watched some history documentaries about the starting of our country.    I am so proud of our founding fathers.  I am awed by the obstacles they overcame and glad that I get to benefit from their efforts.  As cheesy as it sounds, I am proud to be an American.

Unfortunately, I am a bit down this evening.  I LOVE the fireworks, the best part of summer, and am not going this year.  I didn't think I could handle Xander alone.  I was going to, but the thought of needing to go to the bathroom and taking him into a dark port-a-potty with me really turned me off from it.  Also a bit sad at the contrast from last years 4th.  Oh well.  Next year will be even better!

Anyway, Happy Independence Day!
