We had a great time celebrating our first 4th of July with Alexis! My best friend Carrie and her fiance Patrick were visiting us from South Carolina and we spent most of the 4-day weekend with them, and had a great time. On Sunday, we had a fun lunch at Soup Plantation, mall with my bestie Carrie, took some pictures of Alexis and the dogs, and then watched fireworks. We decided to watch them from the rooftop of the Krikorian Theater's parking garage. From there we could see several fireworks in the distance and the main show put on by Downey High. This was a great option and close to home in case Alexis got scared. Surprisingly, Alexis loved the fireworks. She smiled and didn't flinch or cry at all. Then she got sleepy and fell asleep in my arms during the show finale. Great way to spend her first 4th of July! God bless America!
