Pin It


4th Activities (or lack of)

We decided to treat the holiday very casually. We bought a bunch of chicken and steak and Dadda monkey grilled them outside. Monkey girl got to play on her playset for a while and Bro Bro's been working on pulling himself up. Bro Bro monkey was uncharacteristically fussy for a little while because he has his two top teeth working on coming in. He wanted to be held most of the time which made for difficult cooking, but he eventually passed out for a nap in the play yard we set up in the living room. I thought it would be nice to make crepes (I know, not very American) with the leftover strawberries for everyone for breakfast, but it turned out no one was interested in my breakfast for some reason, hmph. I promise they weren't that bad;  I can attest to that since I got extras.

The evening was enjoyable as well. We heard fireworks going off during dinner and decided to take a walk around the block to see more. We got a little mini fireworks show from our neighbors. Bro Bro was in the stroller and just enjoyed being pushed around. Monkey girl liked the 'sparkles' that were a couple streets over, but the ones nearby were a little much for her. At one point, she told me various Ni Hao Kai Lan characters were scared so we decided that was our cue to go back inside. I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday and Happy belated Canada Day to my Canadian friends.


  1. I love relaxing holidays. There is nothing better than being lazy with the family.

  2. Our 4th was very relaxing and low key as well. With an 11 month old, watching fireworks at 9:30 just wasn't an option! Now following...your family is adorable!

  3. The crepes comment made me laugh...I made those for my little family one morning too and like you...they were deffinitely not a "favorite" :)I like them though!

  4. The red on the strawberries was patriotic. Works for me! :)
    We like crepes with strawberries. We buy the pre-made crepes, fill with vanilla custard, then top with strawberries, whipped cream and drizzled with chocolate.


I appreciate your feedback!
