Boogie really enjoyed his first 'real' Independence Day celebration.  Last year, being only one week old, he didn't have a lot of team spirit or excitement to partake in the festivities (he pretty much slept through that whole day...).

This year, we started off the day at the Lenexa City Parade.

It was a beautiful morning, sunny and 80 degrees, and the crowds weren't bad at all.  The parade itself was nothing to write home about, just your typical holiday parade....started off with a bunch of politicians shaking hands and kissing babies, followed by endless girl/boy scout troops throwing candy, of course there were some Shriners in little cars and it concluded with about 100 people in costume promoting the KC Ren-Fest (Boogie, nor I, knew exactly what to think about that group of crazies!).

We came home for some lunch and major bathroom repair and destruction (that's a WHOLE-nother story for another time!).

In the afternoon, we took some family pictures (assignments for my photography class that actually turned out great!)

We debated for awhile whether Boogie was ready for staying up late and joining the crowds to watch fireworks.  I was worried they might be too loud and scary (like the, uh hum, vacuum cleaner!! aaahh!!!), but we decided to head out and give it a try.  Why I was worried, I don't know.  Just like everything else in life, Boogie LOVED the fireworks; pointing at them all and saying "boom!"
