Happy 4th of July!

Although this was not Jacob's first 4th, it was his first time to see fireworks on the 4th. So it was monumental for us! Many of you are probably wondering...how did he do??? Well, there's a couple of videos at the end of this post of him during the fireworks display, but I didn't catch his first reaction in the videos. He heard the big booms before he got the lights and colors, so he was pretty scared and cried for about 10 seconds, but once he saw the lights, he watched them very intently. I think we'll be doing it again next year!!! Here's some photos from the day.
Our family photo. We are still working on getting Jacob to smile for these...so this was the best we could get!

We went to the Belle Meade Country Club and sat on their driving range and waited for the show to start. It was a great show. It lasted about 20-30 minutes and we were close enough that we felt the "showers" from the fireworks. The good thing about this show is that the traffic getting home wasn't bad, and it was close to home too. The only thing missing is coordinating patriotic music. So if any members of "The Club" are reading...maybe you can suggest that for next year! :) Here's a picture of the whole group...Chris, Pam, John, Tracy, Jeff, Sam B., Jacob, and Chris. What a fun evening!

Beautiful!


Here's the video I promised! I hope it makes you feel as if you were right there with us enjoying his first 4th of July fireworks show!
