After a hard day celebrating his birthday, Joey was up and ready to go for the 4th of July parade. Joey did pretty well in the beginning of the parade with the loud noises, Aubrie kept him content through the sirens and horns. After a while though he got tired so he fell asleep on Daddy's shoulder and then was set up in the wagon for a nap. It was a pretty funny sight. Dad has the picture on his phone so he can upload it later, Joey didn't flinch once he was out.
After his long nap Joey was ready to party hop again. So we stopped by Aunt Gerri and Uncle Joe's 4th of July party. It was great to see them, but we wish they had better weather. (Aunt Gerri, I will definitely post Josh's Popeye face for you.) We then headed over to see Uncle Chris at the country club. We had dinner there and then the rain cleared up a bit and Joey was able to go on his first pony ride. Joey loved the ponies from afar. He would wave and get very excited, but whenever Dad put him on one he got a little worried. Andrew tried out an obstacle course moonjump with Auntie Christy and decided he'd rather be in the open blow ups where he can jump around. We ended the day with a golf cart ride before heading home.
