Fourth of July

I am soo soo very late putting this memory together.
Unpacking boxes is still consuming my life.

With just moving to this new area we weren't quite sure what there was to do for the forth. We are living in the city so we knew 'something' was happening but there wasn't much advertisement about it.

We asked one of our neighbors (after she came over with her kids to introduce themselves....on that note, both my neighbors are extremely friendly. Every home that we ever lived in (5) we have never talked so much as a hello, how are you. Here, it is the absolute total opposite. Both neighbors have knocked on our door with yummy sweets. One side is a older couple that is extremely sweet to Emma, the other side has 5 kids, one is close to Emma's age. Best of both worlds) were fireworks were happening. 

We live pretty close to a big river and there is a outdoor stage where there is live music every Friday.  Friday the 3rd was when they having a concert and then the firework show after.
 The live music was Landau Murphy Jr.
He was the winner of America's Got Talent sixth season.
 Everything reminds me of Hawaii :(
 We arrived to the festivities way to early!
Emma was a crazy girl the whole time.
 Finally starting to get dark out.
 It was so humid out so the smoke was stuck in the air. The fireworks were nice over the river though. They ended up setting them off in two different places so we had double the show.

On July 4th we drove a little ways away to a small town just outside the city to watch a parade.
It was definitely what I expected out of a small WV town.

 The parade was mostly cars and people waving while sitting on cars.
Everyone was throwing candy for the kids which Emma had a blast collecting.
 Overall we had a great relaxing 4th.
 I hope everyone enjoyed themselves on this beautiful day.
