We spent the 4th in Atlanta this year. Robyn was having her day of fun with Emma on the 4th, and we had to get fingerprinted by USCIS for the adoption on the 5th.
We headed out in the morning, all decked out in our patriotic duds.
While Robyn and Emma went off to do their stuff, Wayne and Abby and I headed downtown to celebrate. But for some reason, they weren’t allowing people into the festivities in Centennial Park…we waited half an hour and then gave up on the park in favor of air-conditioned adventures at World of Coca-Cola.
After our adventures at Coke, we went back to Robyn’s house for a swim in her neighborhood pool.
I wanted a couple of pictures of us in our patriotic splendidness. (Robyn’s patriotism is questionable, based on this photo.)
However, she was cool enough to buy us these fun toe rings.
Robyn curled Emma’s hair for her. She also bought these hairbands for the girls. (She may be a patriot after all.)
Our plans to watch fireworks got rained out, so we watched some on tv. Abby was feeling a bit sick, but Max knew what to do.
