A Three Day Weekend, In Three Images
Guess who came to Near Philadelphia for his very first Fourth of July? Who attended the foot races and decorated bicycle competition down at the park? Who sat in the sweltering heat through most of the parade? Who was quite the hit at the picnic afterward? Who even hung around for a few of the fireworks?
Elijah Boo, that's who!
Here he is with his mommy, sporting his signature hairstyle. Andrew, Amy and Eli arrived Saturday afternoon and were able to stay with us until Monday morning. A&A were not able to hold him very much!
Sunday morning that was remedied; Joe designed a block of wood that he fastened to the front of the house with the bracket affixed to it. Here is our very first flag ceremony, with Andrew as assistant officer in charge.
We had about 30 adults at our picnic and people brought delicious things to share. Joe's fireworks were spectacular; the one's provided by the Patriotic Association no less so. It was deemed a very successful Fourth of July.
Here's Bill. Later on, I'm going to lay him down on my bed (ooooh the scandal!) and see if he needs additional borders or if he is just fine as he is.
I'm so in love with him . . . .
