Happy Fourth of July!

Zander's first Fourth of July celebration was both fun and action-packed!  We started with a delicious big breakfast at Amy's brother's house - Heather made pancakes, sausage, hashbrowns, eggs, fruit, etc.  It was a fun way to start the day and get the cousins together.  Zander enjoyed wearing his special flag overalls with matching shirt which used to be Luke's.  (Most of Zander's wardrobe has come from his cousins - he appreciates them sharing with him, and of course their good taste!).  Here are Luke, Brady and Zander playing together before the meal. 
Next was a neighborhood Fourth of July parade.  Zander enjoyed meeting more of his neighbors and seeing everyone's Fourth of July dress and decorations.  What fun!  Here he is bringing up the rear in the parade (L to R: Julie & Dillion, Amy & Zander, Nana Pat, Brady & Heather).  We voted Heather as 'Most Spirited' with her sparkly flag hat and earrings - plus she spearheaded our decorations:
Zander didn't last too long in the parade as it overlapped with his morning naptime:
He finally woke up at the very end of the celebration and was quick to provide Daddy with direction on where he wanted to be carried:
In the afternoon, we attended a fun barbecue hosted by our friends Brian & Anna, as well as their new addition, beautiful Miss Clara:
We had another delicious meal and had a great time playing with friends - here is Zander playing with the ladies - Lucy and Clara:
We enjoyed sharing the holiday with family and friends!  We are a few days behind on our blog, so stay tuned for details on Zander's big field trip on Friday and his first Twins game on Saturday!
