Happy 4th of July

Our neighborhood had a parade Friday afternoon, so Avery and I went and checked it out. After the parade they had a small carnival for the kids. Avery enjoyed a train ride, carousel ride and a balloon hat. On Saturday morning we headed to Brenham stopping in Chappell Hill for the 4th of July parade. It was extremely hot as all of the seats in the shade were taken when we got there, but what do you expect when you get there as the parade is starting. Avery was only concerned about getting candy and that she got a lot of. Saturday evening we went to Independence to watch the fireworks. Avery did enjoy the fireworks, but being we were 100 yards from where they were launching them it was extremely loud. Once they were over Avery said the fireworks were pretty, but she didn't like them because it was too loud.

Happy Birthday.....Daddy is another Year Older

Today is Alan's birthday and I thought it would be cute for Avery and I to make him some special cupcakes.

Is there anything more fitting than golf themed cupcakes?
The ones with brown sugar on them are suppose to look like a bunker,
not too happy with how they turned out, but then again I am not Martha Stewart.

Singing Happy Birthday to Daddy
Make a Wish
Enjoying the cupcakes
Happy Birthday Daddy, We Love You!!!!
Hope you enjoyed your day!!
