First stop - the Bristol parade - the oldest 4th of July celebration in the country!
With much fanfare, that included a visit from Mickey and Minnie (clearly the highlight for Sophia) the parade was a huge success.
It was a hot one, which, in Rhode Island, means only one thing:
|Ice Cold Dell's Lemonade!|
Sophia insisted on wearing her finery the next day too -
For the first time, Sophia was able to stay awake and watch the fireworks over Newport harbor. She was a little scared of the loud noises originally, but the wind blew the sound in the other directions so she was able to enjoy! I even taught her "Oooo, Ahhhh" the traditional 4th of July refrain. :)
Next year, Theo will get to enjoy the evening spectacle too!
