We spent the 4th of July at my parents' house.
Gramma painted Mercedes' nails red, white and blue "to match the American flag".
Mercedes and I made yummy 4th of July strawberries by dipping the strawberries in white chocolate and then in blue sprinkles.
Mercedes did quite a bit of tasting while she worked.
When Mercedes was ready for her next snack, we cut watermelon with cookie cutters. She probably would have done this all afternoon if we'd had enough watermelon.
We ended up watching the city fireworks in our car because both girls were scared of the noise.
I got a few shots of the fireworks through the car window but we ended up leaving before the really big ones started because Mercedes was still scared.
Both babies fell asleep on the way home.
Besides a little drama during family pictures and the fireworks, it was a good day.
