Our Fourth of July was full of FUN and FOOD and FRIENDS!!
We started our day at the pool. Pierremont had a huge spread of hot dogs, hamburgers, bar-b-que, watermelon, strawberries, and cake. Taylor pigged out!!!
After the munchies, we played in the pool, getting plenty of practice for the beach.Taylor tried her first taste of ICEE.
Quickly, I was told by Little Miss Priss that it was "taylor's not Mommy's"
After a nice long afternoon nap (for all of us), we cleaned up and headed Downtown with some friends. We went for the fireworks show and instead got 2.5 hours of good ole Shreveport Bossier people watching, plenty of sweating, the purchase of one overpriced Japanese disco playing butterfly toy (which we quickly lost interest in), a GIANT cup of fresh squeezed (but not cooled) lemonade, two choo-choo trains blasting their whistles as they chug-a-chugged on by, and, finally, a walk to the car in a complete down pour....don't let the sarcastic explanation of the evening fool you. We actually had an absolute blast.
Sadly, no fireworks over the Shreveport riverfront on July 4th, 2011. As the rain and thunder began rolling in, the officials asked the crowd to "remain calm, but seek shelter immediately."
