Fourth of July at the Port

Summer has arrived!  Hence, my absence.  We have been savoring every moment of this weather and lifestyle.  This (weather) is what we have worked for.  A few flawless days of weather totally makes up for the dark, cold, and wet winter days.  

Starting at the beginning, I kept the nautical theme for the kiddo's Fourth of July attire.  It was nearly impossible to get a good photo of them - this is it...


We observed the "Famous" Friday Harbor Fourth of July Parade (just up the street from the port) as well as Friday Harbor's fireworks show (right in front of the Port of Friday Harbor).

K, as usual, slept through the thundering and startling sounds, M, as usual, woke up.  We brought him above deck to the bow to watch the show.  He is not sure what he thought of it... but his eyes were wide and he was absorbing everything.  

Taking it all in...

The Fourth of July is, personally, my favorite holiday.  We were able to share the day with my mom, her fiance, and my in laws.  I can tell that, as the kids get older, each holiday experience is going to become more fun because we get to see them discover and witness exciting new events.

Happy belated Fourth of July!
