4th of July 2017

The Carnival came back again for the 4th of July. This year Jillian was tall enough for more rides. Poor Adrian had to go on the gravitron with her… it spins around and forces you against the sides. Adrian said he felt like he was having heart palpitations because of that ride…. not to mention the nausea!  Claire and Olivia stuck to the little rides but just watching them go in circles made me nauseous. Randomly, my brother Jason and his girlfriend Chloe showed up at the same time. Jillian was thrilled because Chloe was willing to take her on the Zipper.  Jillian was a champ during the ride, even though Chloe had to hang onto her or she would fall out of the seat. Then once Jillian got off the ride and saw me she broke down crying, she had all the feels! So much emotion from that ride. I thought she was brave just going on it! I would have never done that in a million years… haha even if I weren’t pregnant I wouldn’t go on that ride!

On the actual night of the 4th, Adrian set up the fire-pit in the front yard for smores. It was really nice to be able to offer smores to our neighbors! I love our neighborhood and I love that we can watch the fireworks from our front yard!
