We started the day with some red, white, and blue pancakes. I really liked how they turned out. I just used some food coloring in the batter and then cooked like normal. It was very festive.
Next was hair and makeup time. We did the red, white, and blue colors again. I saw a picture of this hairstyle on a little girl and I re-created it for my step daughter Amelia. It came out BEAUTIFUL. See the star made out of braids?!
At around 5:30 we headed to the part to get a spot for the festivities. We invited some friends and Tom’s family was in town so we all got a big spot on the grass. It started raining shortly after we got there. It was a bummer because it didn’t stop for about an hour! Everything got pretty wet but I guess that is the trade off in order to enjoy fireworks this year. We haven’t had fireworks for 2 years because of the fires. Luckily the rain did finally stop and we got to see a little sun before the sun went down. Audrey was so tired. She was falling asleep during the fireworks. The finale was loud so it woke her up and she was pretty annoyed haha! But YAY for fireworks FINALLY!
