I hope that everyone had a great 4th of July. Emerson had a fun one. We went and hung out with Aunt Emily and Uncle Lyle. We played some games, then we went over to Fort Vancouver and hung out until the fireworks. I was kind of worried about Emerson and the fireworks, but they didn't phase him at all. For about the first 20 seconds he looked at the lights, then he just sat in my arms looking at me until he fell asleep. I am glad that he was able to make it through them with no problem.
