Whew, what a busy weekend. On Friday evening, the 3rd, we went to fireworks in Fort. What I love about these fireworks is that it's just a big group of people. No crowds, no parking issues, just a nice set of fireworks. This was Landon's first time experiencing fireworks. How did they go? Well, he didn't love them. About half way through the 15 minute show, Landon started waving and said, "Go go," as he pointed to the car. He stuck it out on Daddy's lap. Seeming as how he was up until 10:30, you would have thought he slept in on the 4th. Nope, up at 5:15, as usual.
On the 4th we went to the kids parade in Festina. I know what you're thinking, and yes, Festina has a parade. It was adorable, and apparently keeps doubling in size every year. This was also a first for Landon as he has never been to a parade before. He loved it, and he got a TON of stuff. Flip flops, beach balls, string cheese, a whistle and a bag FULL of candy. Daddy gets the candy, Landon gets the rest. Grandma Merrill went with, and we even saw Grandpa Sabelka driving a fire truck. It is the cutest little parade, and I higly recommend it to anyone next year!
In the afternoon Jeremy's Grandma Miller who lives in Cedar Falls came up to visit. It had been a while since we last saw her so it was nice to catch up. After our visit, we headed over to my brother and sister in laws in Spillville for their annual Fourth of July party. Landon did well keeping up with the other kids and definitely had fun watching! We didn't stick around for the fireworks, but I don't think Landon missed them.
