I had other ideas. Do you see that sign behind me? How can I resist. So I say, "Let's go shopping." My mom says "No", she does not have any extra money right now. Well, taaadaaa!!! I pull out of my backpack the case I keep my Target giftcards in. Now what can she say? In we go and I find exactly what I want.
What song do I want to hear first? There's Hot n Cold by Katy Perry, So What by Pink, Closer by Ne-Yo, but I think I will choose Got Money by Lil Wayne. Do you wonder what I bought...
... Now 29!!! I collect these. Somehow I discovered I missed 29. I already have 30 & 31. After we get back to the car, my mom says it is about time for fireworks. So we sit, and sit...
The next morning we get up early to get a front row seat on the treelawn. Last year we discovered too late that our condo is within walking distance to a parade that is suppose to be a really good one. I did not want to miss it. My mom pushed me in my wheelchair so I would not be out of breath once we got here and then look, it makes a good seat. I brought my iPod so I would not get bored waiting.
How cool is this? A submarine. My mom thinks there is a blogger out there that has someone working on submarines. Update: It is Sonia's husband and Lillian's dad at hapagirlhapafamily.
It's getting a little hot. I brought an apple juice just in case I got thirsty. Good thing my mom brought this umbrella to shade me from the sun.
Haaaa. Now this is funny. If you watch the movie we posted you can see these ladies move. They sorta walk like they are connected or something.
Oh I like that firetruck...
Oh geeze. There always has to be a damn clown, my exact words as soon as I saw it. I hope she doesn't see me. Too late. My mom got a little mad at me because I almost made my wheelchair fall backwards as I tried to get away from her.
Oh good, horses. You know I love horses. They were the last thing in the parade. I told my mom I know why. In case they poop no one has to walk in it. She said I am so smart when I think of things like that:)
We are back at the condo about to make some cards to thank people in the military. You can read more about this project on my mom's blog.
Look at this. While we were stamping, my mom got this text message on her phone from my brother. Before we left on Friday she made a big pot of beef stew, red and blue jello, brownies and peanut butter cookies with Hershey kisses in them so the boys would not starve while we were gone. It is only Saturday and they ate them already!!!
Well here it is Saturday night. There are more fireworks. This time my mom thinks we can see them from our balcony. So here we sit. And wait, and wait, and wait.
As soon as the first one went off right over our roof I said, "I'm outa here." And back in to watch tv I went. I had fun this 4th of July. I hope you did too. My mom says we need to thank all the families that have someone serving in the military, especially some of our blogging friends like Big Blueberry Eyes, Embracing Life as a Household of 6, Life with my Special Ks, and The Andrews Family. THANK YOU!!!
