Fourth of July

Ab had several first this past weekend.  First 4th of July, first funnel cake, first sparkler, first 4th parade…..

We tried to explain the 4th to the best of our ability…Rachel told him it was when the emancipation confirmation was signed (apparently we need to work on american history a bit!)

We had a great fourth hanging out at The Frontier Culture Museum (where Bekah volunteers) and then at friends’ house.

Quote of Ab on the fourth:

Ab at the 4th: "Mom, I need to go home, I'm frisky" Me (laughing of course) : " you mean freezing?" Ab: "no, frisky, like when you want a drink!" Me: "thirsty!"
