July 4th at Carter-Finley

The city of Raleigh puts on a great fireworks show at the fairgrounds every year. For the past couple of years, our church has had a get together over at Carter-Finley Stadium to eat and watch the show (it's a great view from there). We went last year and had a great time, so we made sure we were back from the beach so we could go again this year. There were about 200 people there from our church. Grandma, Grandpa, MeMaw, Paw Paw, Aunt Jen, and Unkie were all there too. Mia really enjoyed it, except she thought the fireworks were too loud. Here are some pics.

Mia eating a huge cookie. And yes, that was pretty much her dinner that day because it's all she would eat.

When the fireworks started. She didn't really like them because they were too loud.

Mia and her friend Joella (they are only a few days apart) thought it would be better to watch the fireworks from the car. They pretty much played and ate cheerios more than they watched fireworks, but they had fun.

On a side note, Mia is doing really well going potty. She is wearing big girl underwear most of the time now (except naptime and bedtime), and staying dry! She still won't poop in the potty, and pretty much times it when she's wearing a pull-up. I haven't figured out how we are going to change that yet. We have gotten brave and gone out places with her big girl underwear on and she hasn't had an accident yet. She still wears a pull-up to church and on long car rides, but hopefully that will change soon.
