Happy Fourth of July- two days late

So this Fourth of July was very special because it was Blakes first. Ryan had to study all day so we just kind of hung around the house. At six o'clock we went and got Subway sandwiches and some sparklers to do later that night. We drove up to a little mountain that Ryan and I used to hike up when we were dating. The mountain had a great view of the strip. Since Ryan and I hadn't been up there since we had been married we decided to go with Blake and watch fireworks. We got up to the mountain and ate our sandwiches and played with Blake. We had actually gotten up there to early so by the time they were starting Blake was getting a little fussy. We decided to hike down before it got to late and drive around to watch the fireworks. We drove to a little spot that overlooked the strip and watched the pretty fireworks. We then decided to do our sparklers with Blake. It was so much fun to watch his reaction. He stared at the sparklers and didn't take his eyes off of them. It was so fun to watch Ryan and Blake play together. Later that night we came home and Blake had fallen asleep in the car. We thought that he would wake up not to long after we put him in his bed because he had not eaten in a long time. Well he kept sleeping and sleeping and didn't wake up until 5:30 the next morning which is I believe the longest he has ever slept through the night. It was amazing. He had a very long day though. The night was so much fun being all together as a family. I am so grateful for this country and for the freedoms that we have. I am grateful for both of my grandpas that fought for our country. I am grateful for my family both the Ormes and the Wests. And I am so very grateful for my husband and my precious little boy who is the light of my life.

Here are a few more pictures from that night. HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!!!!!

Have a great Day!!!!!!!!!!!
