Fireworks Spectacular

4th of July on a Wednesday was definitely a new thing for me. I realize that sounds silly, because surely in the last 30 years, this has occurred at least 3 or 4 times before. However, its the first time I remember having a Wednesday off work. Initially, Krista was a little bit concerned that everyone else had "plans" and we didn't. However, she got over that by making us some plans... which were wonderful! We made a morning trek to Tennessee Valley and did the short 2 mile hike to the beach with the girls. Alex loved fetching water from the surf, and Reese continued her long and seemingly never ending quest to find the best tasting sand in the bay area.

Following the successful afternoon adventure, we braved the evening keeping Alex up for the 4th of July fireworks. Although this was against our better judgment, what were we to do? She had been talking about them for 2 weeks, so it didn't seem fair to deprive her of the experience. Daddy and Alex ventured out in the jogging stroller at 9:30, and enjoyed an awesome display over the bay. Nearing the finale, Alex turned to Daddy and said "Daddy, I'm sleeping now" to which Daddy replied, "do you want to go home then?" "No, after the fireworks are over please."

It was a great time, and one of the more memorable father-daughter moments thus far.
