What I did on the Fourth of July.

Sort of sounds like those essays you have to write after summer vacation is over.

Anyhoo, we had a busy Fourth. My uncle Kenny threw a graduation party for my cousin Lauren, who just finished high school.

Uncle Kenny and Piper

Mom was feeling well enough to go and cuddle with my cousin's newborn baby, Jewlian. Don't ask me about the spelling of his name. I don't understand it either.

Wonder who made that blanket? Heehee

Mini me and I.

We left in the middle of the party, hoping to make the fireworks show at the Hudson River. On the way there, we noticed the Empire State Building was decked out in red, white, and blue.

Because of the graduation party, we got to the fireworks later than we had hoped and weren't able to get a good spot. We were able to see some of the fireworks from an avenue (and a tree) away. That's about the best shot we got. Oh well, we tried!

Hope you all had a great Fourth of July!

I saw firworks on the Hudson about 7 years ago. All I remember was that it was SOOOOO muggy, there were a million people, and there were about 500 people smoking near us. It was an experience!

I scrolled down to the pictures before I finished reading, and thought at first that was you holding the baby, because you and your mom look so much alike! Seeing fireworks near the Empire State building must be awesome! NYC is on my list of places I absolutely want to visit someday before I die. : )
