The Fourth of July

We decided that we’d better appreciate our country with some patriotic symbolism while we still can, and while we’re still excited about our president.  For the occasion, we dressed Liam up as the “Crazy Conductor” of Stanford University marching band fame.  We threw in *just* a dash of uncle same.  Just a dash.  Here’s the get up, cape and all, proudly displayed:

 Liam and Daddy attended the kids parade, which looked like this:

And in which Liam looked like this:

And this:

When the parade reached the park, Liam got up in front of the band, and did some energetic conducting.

And got a balloon.

Reid also enjoyed the festivities, with all his senses.

Tonight: Taiko drumming and fireworks.

    Okay, those shots of Liam are totally awesome and cute. But that shot of Reid's mind exploding is seriously incredible. Hooray for patriotism!

    Side note: I like how the balloon string is the same angle as the stroller frame. You know what I'm talking about.

    Love and hugs!

    What a get-up! So how'd you devise the neat hat? Nice star, too. What a Music Man! And there is no resemblance to Uncle Sam–yea. Were there 76 trombones, Liam?

    What a baby, tongue and all!
