Stella
Our 4th was spent swimming at my moms. We hung out with friends and family and made our way to the park for the grand fire works show at night. It was all exciting and fun untill we got back into our car at 10:30 and then sat in our car in traffic for an hour just to get out of the parking lot. And during that hour in our car we had 3, yes 3 screaming crying kids, who were thristy (yea no water anywear to be found), and tired. Finally after we got moving they all crashed quickly. Whew!! fire work shows are all fun and good but I don't know if it's worth all that. Anyway my favorite quote of the day was by Stella as she sat in Johns lap watching the fire works show. A huge bright purple colored firework exploded across the sky. Stella gasped, pointed, clutched her hands to her face and squeeled with glee "it's the same color as my dress!!!!" The only words spoken by her through out the whole show. Ahhhh my little girl.

Look at how grown-up Stella looks here. My girl wanted so desperately to see the fireworks and she did, but we paid a price and I asked myself the same question. At the end of the day though, what we'll remember are moments like these, not the moments when they've all ratted out.
