I hope everyone had a happy, happy Fourth of July! We had an amazing weekend, spent it in Tucson with my family. We were going, going, going the whole time so I thought I’d share some of our weekend with you all!We left Thursday morning. Two hour car rides with a ten month old baby = not ideal. She was fussy and trying to figure out how to get out of her car seat the whole time. Finally, once we got to Catalina, she passed out. (But that was only 20 minutes from our destination………) Anthony and I were crammed in the backseat with the car seat, luckily he can sleep anywhere (and he did)!!
As soon as we got there, we went straight for the pool. Brooklynn loves swimming!!
Friday morning, my grandma, Anthony and I went on a mission to find lots of fireworks, which was surprisingly hard. We eventually found some at Target. On the way home, we stopped to get a party pack of watermelon Eegees, so of course I had to order some Bacon Ranch Fries to go.
Fireworks were a major success, we had tons left over. My grandparent’s house, where we stayed, is in the Catalina Foothills, so we had a breathtaking view of about ten different firework shows across Tucson, as well.
A few Fourth of July comparison photos. First one is Fourth of July last year at 31 weeks pregnant with Brooke and then this year at 29 weeks pregnant!Second one is me on my first Fourth in 1995 (I was nine months old) and Brooklynn on her first Fourth in 2014 (at ten months old).
Anthony’s phone actually cracked while we were hiking and his screen stopped working so we had to take it to get fixed. On our way home from the Tucson Mall, our view of the Catalina’s was amazing! The storm clouds were hiding the mountains! About an hour after we got home, the storm hit my grandparent’s house. We all sat outside on the patio and watched in awe. It even started hailing, too! I love the lightning and thunder, it’s one of the things I miss most about living in Tucson. Brooklynn loved the rain, too.
Sunday morning, we headed home, back to reality. We had such an amazing weekend, filled with laughter and love! Happy Fourth of July!
