Take us out to the ballgame. Take us out to the crowd. Buy us some...well, you know the rest!

This was the first time since Sarah was an infant that we were not at the Cape visiting Dan's family for the 4th of July.  For various reasons (mostly related to Dan's work schedule) we decided to postpone our trip until later in the summer - which meant we were home to celebrate the 4th!

And celebrate we did!  We ate hot dogs and hamburgers at not one but two cookouts.  We went to the pool.  We went to a baseball game and we saw two fireworks displays.  All I needed was an apple pie and this weekend would have been textbook Fourth of July.

We had a great time at the Dash baseball game. We ate pizza, hot dogs and ice cream.

Sarah and Peter have always ridden the carousel when we take them to see the Dash play.  Sarah wanted to ride it this year and Peter reluctantly told Sarah he would ride with her - I guess he's getting a little too old for that now.

Sarah was a little bummed out because the carousel was full and instead of a pony or a dragon or even a giraffe, she had to ride a bench with two other girls that she didn't even know.  And on top of that, I couldn't get a good picture.  But I'm going to share the blurry ones anyway...

Sarah is the ghostly image wearing a white shirt looking very forlorn sitting behind the woman holding the baby.

Peter is the embarrassed big kid sitting beside the woman and the 1 year old.
Here we are during the game:
Peter and Dan (Aren't they handsome?)

Sarah and Me (Aren't we adorable?)

After the game and the fireworks show, they announced that they were going to let the kids run the bases.  Peter and Sarah both asked if they could do it so we agreed.  They lined up with about 100 other kids at the first base entrance and then finally, they opened the gate and let them go a couple at a time.  And yes, these are blurry as well.  Grrrrr.....I think it's time for a new camera.

The first white blur is Peter and the blur behind him is Sarah.

Sarah better speed up - a blue blur is about to overtake her.
And now I'm off to research cameras.  I think I need a grown-up camera that can take more than just a quick snapshot in the sunlight.  All these ghostly images are giving me a headache!
