Oh what a fun weekend we had! This weekend was the Bagelfest in our small town (Lender's Bagels is headquartered here and sponsor's our fair each summer) and we had a great time! We took Max to his first good ol' fashion parade and he scored more candy than most kids do on Halloween! Its was so stinkin' hot outside, but he didn't seem to mind.
Later that night, we finally broke out the sparklers we had bought around the fourth of July but never got around to using. Max was in total awe. After a round of safety instructions, we let him hold them as they burned down, and I think he thought he was the coolest kid on the block! I love that about Max, he finds the joy in the smallest things! And, I love getting to experience all these first with him!
We are gearing up for a week long trip to North Carolina to visit Grandma and Grandpa (Stephen's folks) Aunt 'Ginia and Uncle Ryan and we are all SO excited! I'll have lots of pictures to share after our trip!
