What are holidays other than an excuse to spend time with family? We were pretty low-key this year for the 4th of July. We went to the Aerospace Museum of California and let G run around like a madman looking at planes, helicopters, and anything with an engine. He loves it there.
Then, instead of the traditional hot dogs and potato salad, I wanted to try something healthier for dinner. We had the most delicious “healthy” chicken pitas. I was quite proud of myself for making it all. They were pretty easy too. Prepping the chicken was the most time-intensive part. Can’t wait to make these again. Maybe I’ll post my make-shirt recipe one day too.
And because we still have a toddler on a pretty set schedule, no fireworks for us this year. My thinking and hoping with all of these “when he is older” moments is that he has his whole life to enjoy them. Maybe next 4th of July he’ll be ready to stay up and watch the fireworks. Most importantly, while I heard fireworks for about 3 hours straight, he barely flinched. I’m always worried the raucous would wake him up but he slept like a champ.
I hope everyone had a happy and safe 4th of July!
