What a fun day we've had! The weather wasn't too hot, the activities were fun, and our daughter got to experience some things for the first time. Always fun.
Our day started with pancakes for breakfast. Zoe helped me set the table by putting forks on the napkins I had placed at our chairs. Well, apparently I was forgetting about Aspen, so she got into the silverware drawer and got one of the plastic forks out and put it on a napkin for her. Then when she went to tell Matt that breakfast was ready she proclaimed, "Baby Aspen is going to flip out of Mommy's tummy and eat pancakes with us because she really likes pancakes!" It makes you wonder what she thinks about Aspen being in my tummy.
After breakfast we headed out to the annual Clearfield parade. Zoe has never been to a parade before, so I don't think she understood what to expect. We had to park about a block away and walk down to find a place to set up our chairs. Then, when the candy came she wanted to go get some with Matt. We saw all sorts of fun things. The pig from Famous Dave's BBQ seems to be what stuck with her the most though.
After dinner we went to Baskin Robbins for ice cream. On the way there she told us that she was going to get pink ice cream (strawberry), Mommy was going to have green (mint?), and Daddy was going to have brown (chocolate). She loves the treat of getting ice cream.
Then of course there's the fireworks. We had originally intended to go see the ones for the city with friends from church, but their plans had to change, so we stuck around the house. She watched the neighbors set of fireworks in the street and then did a couple of sparklers with Matt. She's had a very fun, full day.
