4th of July Festivities

Starting my day off right
We had a pretty relaxing day compared to previous years...I guess having a new baby will do that.  We spent most of the morning at the house since we had some serious pop up thunderstorms (normal Florida weather in the summer).
Summer Rains
Early in the afternoon we went to Nick's parents house to meet up with his family and some family friends that were in town from Tennessee.

Cat Napping
Later in the evening we decided to go ahead and venture out down to the beach to watch the fireworks show that started around 9:15pm.  We went right around sunset and since this was Brandon's first trip to the beach I wanted to go ahead and get his toes in the sand and the water.  He absolutely loved it.  He is going to be such a water baby.  It was so funny becuase if I turned him away from the water he would get upset.  He loved watching the waves come in.

We then settled in to watch the fireworks over the Santa Rosa sound.  I was a little worried that all the noise would scare Brandon, but nope, he loved it.  He watched the ENTIRE fireworks show without making a peep.  He was mesmerized by all the different colors and sounds.  All in all, it was a great 1st Independence Day celebration with Brandon (minus the ridiculous heat and humidity going on right now).

Watching the fireworks.  So enamored by it all.
BTW...we went through 3 outfits today.  He had a blowout in outfit one and got outfit two wet at the beach. All in a day's work for a 3 month old :)

Also, hope to have some pics from the beach up soon.
