We decided to go into St. Augustine for the Fourth since they cancelled the fireworks here. I did make some cupcakes (from scratch) before we went, but they turned out rather so-so. Think I will be sticking to the boxed kind on these (although, Lily did reallly like them). They did turn out fairly pretty.
She had to have her picture with the "pup-cakes."
We had a lot of fun watching the fireworks. We went to Nathan's grandparent's house on Salt Run and watched from their dock. it was perfect, because the girls could see, but it wasn't loud and there was no crowd! The girls both just curled up on my lap and sat watched the show. It was great. Here are some pics of Lily doing some sparklers with Uncle Marc and Nate.
Ah, and now, for the ouchie. I debated about putting this up here, but it is going to be my excuse for not having anything new for a while. I somehow managed to catch my little toe on the side of my desk. It made this horrible cracking sound. I'm not entirely sure what I did to it, but my foot got all bruised and I had to hobble around on it for a couple of days. We just taped it up and wrapped it with some foam bandage stuff. It is starting to feel better today, but I am super paranoid about the kids stepping on it :) Anyhow, we've been in the house all week because I have not been brave enough to try to take them somewhere I may have to chase them down, so this will likely be the only post I get up this week.
