On Monday, the 4th, we packed up Luna's Radio Flyer and drove a mile down the road for the annual Lake Highlands 4th of July Parade. We met her little playgroup friends Alejandro, Clay, Caden, Jack and Tessa while we watched the parade go by. Luna was mesmerized by the firetrucks, man on stilts and all the cheer leaders. We stood under a batch of trees but it was still pretty hot as you can see poor Luna's cheeks were flushed!
I also locked my keys in the car for the first time ever in my life! I was having a mommy brain moment I guess as we were rushing to get out of my car and get her wagon set up. It is impossible to lock the keys in the car so I think I accidentally sat on them which activated the auto-lock and then forgot to pick them up (I always set them down in the backseat when I go to get Luna out of her carseat- maybe I should hold onto them as I get her out from now on so I don't forget them?) Luckily our neighbors (Jack's parents) were there to save the day and drove Todd home to get the spare set. Heather kept us company while I was pulling my hair out as to how this could happen, and on such a hot day :)
I was glad to make it home because Todd had to go into work and we didn't want him to be late! Luckily Luna went down for her morning nap pretty quickly too.
