4th of July!
We started the day by meeting Grandpa Lou at VillageFest in Prairie Village! Silly me - I forgot to put the CF card in the camera before we left so I have no photos to show you! ARGH! BUT - we all had a fantastic time! It was extremely, extremely hot but Kennedy didn't mind! She got to pet and feed LOTS of animals and birds! She watched some sky divers jump from a plane and land! She watched a Chanook helicopter take off! She watched a phenomenal performance by the Marching Cobras! Those kids are beyond amazing! I had sweat running down my face and back just standing there - I don't know how they performed in that heat! Kennedy also jumped in some inflatables, got a Dora tattoo, did some crafts, watched a puppet show and rode a pony! It is something we hope to make a yearly event!!!
I am including the photos below for my family! Kennedy humored me and modeled a few dresses! Both the red and blue dresses are ones that I believe my grandmother made for me when I was little. Mom - if you are reading this and you were actually the seamstress - I am sorry!!!! One of the two of them made them by hand for me! And now Kennedy can wear them!! And I didn't tell her to pose with the umbrella! I swear! She just thinks it is the greatest new toy!
We grilled out and had yummy kabobs - steak, chicken, shrimp and yummy veggies!!!! Then we headed for the fireworks! More on them in a later post! ;)
