Yes, we are back online! HALLELUJAH! I don't know how Clark did it, but he did.

And he's my hero. So, now I can finally post about 4th of July, which will probably seem like a huge letdown now that you've all waited so long... Nevertheless, here is our 4th of July day!

(this picture makes me laugh b/c it looks like A is giving the "peace out")
Since Clark was on call again this year, we were without Daddy and all his funlovingness. But we managed to make it through the day somehow. I took the kids to the parade in downtown Irving. We have never been before, but it was so good and Andrew loved it!

Corinne was doing okay despite the intense sun and heat and loud car horns. She does like to people watch, though, so she was entertained.

Of course, she wasn't really happy until she could sit on the curb next to Andrew and try to catch candy for herself.

We spent the rest of the morning at my grandparents' house with my sister and her kids. I made the decision to not get out for fireworks that night. There was a high probability that Andrew and Corinne would have been scared by them (due to the crying and ear covering from the firetruck at the parade), so we just stayed home and had a normal night.

It really was a fun day because the parade was a new experience for Andrew and Corinne. It's always fun to see them have a new experience and take in every detail with awe and excitement.

Plus, candy being thrown at you is priceless.


erin, wait until you hear the july 4th adventure at the fankhauser house. let's just say fireworks do, in fact, scare kids at least 3 and under (+/- 5 year olds). -jf
