Happy 4th of July!

For the 4th this year, we decided to take Macie to see the Bellvue Fireworks. We thought she would have a blast and LOVE every minute of the beautiful light show. We parked across the interstate behind Old Navy and even invited along some friends, the Stones! Of course the fireworks were delayed, so Macie ran around like a crazy person anxiously awaiting the fireworks! At almost 9:45 p.m. she quickly decided fireworks were NOT HER THING!!! She began FREAKING out, screaming "stop the drums", while digging her head into her daddy's chest! The whole way home and the whole next day all we heard was "scared of the fireworks"!! Friday night Jason had to work the Collierville fireworks so we decided to head over to Nonnie and Pop Pop's house for a swim. The Bartlett fireworks were that night, so I thought we would try again, this time parking MILES away and letting her watch them from a far distance. Yah, NOT A GOOD IDEA EITHER! The minute they started, the freaking out began, and continued until we finally left.....needless to say she HATES fireworks! I guess there is always next year! HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!

Mommy and Macie before the fireworks started! Doesn't she look so happy:-)
Very soon after the fireworks began!!
