Happy Fourth, Y'all

The Bauer family had a fantastic Fourth of July weekend - and we sure hope you did, too! It was spent surrounded by family, lots of good food, and a pretty good amount of fireworks. We had Grammy and Poppy down for the weekend, helping Jonathan continue to heal (he's doing great, though!) and the rest of the Montgomery family came over Sunday afternoon. We ate, we visited, we showered Nathan with presents - his favorite part, of course! Yes, birthday week began with quite a bang.... and this was BEFORE the fireworks. :) He was able to open presents from those who won't be able to attend his party Saturday. The lucky guy received everything from an awesome new firetruck to a hungry hippo game to this cute bee towel:

After that, the first question out of his mouth this morning was asking for more "surprises." I told him it's not quite over yet! Anyway, our almost-three-year-old really enjoyed the fireworks, even after getting spooked by some unexpected pops during the day. However, he did make sure that before he ever touched a sparkler or settled in to watch the display, he repeatedly asked if they made noise. :) He ended up enjoying it all, though, as you can see:

I, too, enjoyed the beautiful fireworks, but the best part was spending good quality time with the family! It was so much fun to see everyone and I really appreciate y'all taking the time out to get together. I hope you enjoy the pictures and I hope everybody who was not at my house had as much fun at your own Fourth of July gatherings. Happy Monday!
