The 4th of July

Kelton had a fun-filled day on the 4th of July. He saw his first parade. He met the tallest Uncle Sam I've ever seen, watched the marching bands and was scared by the police truck.

After the parade we went to Fudruckers and had hamburgers for lunch. Yum! Except Kelton, he had a PBJ sandwich. Kelton loves to pull his sandwich apart and eat it from the middle outwards. Very messy! After lunch we went to Homestead Park. Kelton really enjoyed the toddler water area which was designed to look like a little barnyard. Grandpa found a really beautiful moth which Kelton recognized as a bug and showed us his bug sign while he watched it.

The park also had a caboose on display and Kelton was fascinated. Here he is running towards it signing "train". He kept wanting to be picked up so he could look inside. Unfortunately it was locked so we couldn't go inside even though Kelton really wanted to.

Finally the highlight of any 4th of July celebration - the fireworks! Kelton wasn't scared by the noise or the lights. He loved playing with the light rings and had fun watching a movie of the fireworks that Grandpa took on his cell phone.
