We headed to the carnival on post for some music and fireworks, but no funnel cake! Why?! Because I make it at home! Suck on that, $5 per plate carnie food! Digression over. Not suprisingly, we didn't make it to the fireworks. Those turds didn't even start going off until 9:45 and, for those that know Jake, once the clock strikes bedtime [7:30] homeboy's done. But, we thought we'd get wild and give it a go anywho...
We strolled (STROLLER HUMOR!) up around 7pm, pick out our spot, lay out our blanket, and reach under the sunshade of the stroller to get Jake out....he's asleep. Should I have mentioned that he didn't nap that day? Probably because he got up at 10:15. But, whatev.
We don't mess with bedtime often, but we decided to see how things panned out. And this is how it went down...
After we staked out our spot, Gary took Jake for a walk around our little 'hood. My heart goes all loco looking at my boys <3
OK, so here Jake's being all very Field-of-Dreamsy....After his short walks with his Pops, he did not even let one toe off the Spongebob perimeter. Maybe he's playing that game where the ground is lava?!
This was the only night shot I got! It got to be 9pm (we hoped they might have started the fireworks around 8:30) and we just couldn't make the boy wait any longer. Gary was told they wouldn't be starting for another 30-45 minutes, so we just had to tap. We made the best of it though; opened up our backdoor vertical blinds and watched the show in the dark of our living room, from the comfort of our own couch. We've definitely had worse nights <3
Hope you had an amazing weekend!
