Rides, toy-stores, and fireworks.... it is so so so much fun having mommy home with us. We got mommy and daddy to take us to the zoo AGAIN. :) Then mommy took us to the toy-store and got us cameras, and some things she put in the cart and told us it was a surprise for our long car-trip to Texas. She said it would keep us occupied for a little while. We're excited to see what they are. On the night of the 4th, we got to hold sparklers. Daddy lit some other things that flew into the air and whistled, which we didn't care much for. We just held on tight to mommy's neck! We were scared initially, but pretended they were our birthday candles. Mommy and daddy started singing happy birthday to America, and we weren't scared anymore. Today, mommy and daddy took us for some rides and games at the arcade. We are proud to share that we went on the merry-go-round, and other rides, and we're no longer afraid of them. What a fun-filled weekend!
