Madeline's Second Independence Day!

Last year for the 4th we have a big cookout, but this year it seemed most people were out of town! So we decided to have a family day! We started off at the beach, it took us like 30 minutes to find a parking spot! Madeline is such a fish, she is going to be an Olympic swimmer! I don't have many pictures at the beach because we spent most of it in the ocean. She spent the entire time trying to get Taylor to let go of her but the waves were HUGE!

We came home and made BLTs and took naps! Got up at 5:30 and grilled some steaks, yum! Then we headed to downtown Manteo to join the celebrations! We started out with a funnel cake and lemonade!

And then we were lucky enough to stumble onto two wooden seats right on the pier.

By the sailboats!

Madeline loved being in the middle of the action!

However she got bored so we had to entertain her with things like counting dollars.
And playing tug with a bendy straw.

Finally the fireworks started. Madeline laughed, clapped and screamed "whoaaa!"

But she was just too tired to make it so we headed home.
