4th Pictures & Toddle Along Tuesday

I hope everyone had a great July 4th! We had a great time over a friend's house on the 3rd. A local community did their fireworks the day before the 4th, so we didn't see any on the actual holiday.

Olivia has never been able to stay up and watch the fireworks, so this was actually her first year! She's seen fireworks before but not for the holiday. We had a nice evening with friends. Cooked some yummy food. Had a dip in the pool. Saw some pretty fireworks. We didn't get home until 10:30pm and by the time I fed Alex and put her to bed, it was 11pm. Both girls were sleepy and kind of crabby all day today.

We went to the mall and got Alex's ears pierced. We did Olivia's at the same age. I couldn't imagine trying to get a 2 year old to sit and have it done. So, either you have to do it before they hit age 1 or get them done around 5 or 6 years old. She did fine. She was crabby to begin with and didn't like the girl putting the dot on her earlobe. After she calmed down, both girls did them at the same time. She screamed for about 10 seconds and was fine. We finished off with a well deserved bottle. :) They are so cute! I picked tiny little stars with a diamond in the middle since she's got such little ears. Olivia has just plain diamonds right now. *NO, they are not REAL diamonds, maybe when they turn 16 and learn to take care of things*

Anywho, here are some pictures from our day. Hope everyone has a great Tuesday! If you're stopping over from Toddle Along Tuesday, say HI!

My so yummy homemade salsa (I'll share the recipe this week sometime)
