Happy 4th of July!

We've had such a fun 4th of July weekend! Yesterday, we took Molly to Cane Creek Park. She liked swimming, but only if we were holding her. Princess Molly did NOT like the sand (or "dirt" as she called it)--we had to carry her over the sand and into the water. No sand castles for Molly! She would sit on a towel in the sand, but only if she wasn't touching the sand. It was actually very similar to the way she acted with grass last year. She held her feet way up in the air just like she did when we tried to put her in the grass last summer. This year she runs through the grass barefooted, so it gives me hope for the sand. Maybe next year! :-)

Today Molly celebrated her first 4th of July here in the United States as a US citizen. We took a picnic supper to the park to see the fireworks. They also had rides, but being that one member of the Hines family doesn't like rides, one is pregnant, and one is 20 months old, we just watched. :-) Molly did incredibly well with the fire works being that it was WAY past her bedtime and they were very loud. She sat very close to me, but clapped and yelled "YAY!" through the whole show. Fun times!
