Happy Fourth of July!

T's first Fourth of July was a busy day. We watched the parade with lots of family.
The color guard always makes me tear up a little, even though I'm not a very patriotic person (just emotional, maybe?), and standing with T while they passed really threatened to make me cry.
He wasn't quite sure what to make of all the commotion, and was wide eyed through most of the parade. It wasn't until the parade was finished that he started to wave (his current favorite pastime) at all the spectators who were walking back home.
Nana, Great-grandma, and my sister brought the quilt we collaboratively made for T (I did minimal work and braided the tails), and we got a great photograph with 4 generations of us together.
After the parade, Kyle's family stayed for dinner. The after-dinner entertainment was T. He never tired of crawling in and out of the cabinet set aside for him in the kitchin, yelling "Bye!" and waving each time he tried to close the door on himself. (Don't worry - the latch is removed!) And we didn't tire of watching him. Well, perhaps we did, but we didn't let on - he was so proud of himself.
