George Washington and the 4th

Ok, so you all can tell from the pictures that Maggie just doesn't have a ton of hair. I've come to terms with that and have learned to not be jealous of my neice's and all my friends' kids hair. This past week she finally reached the hair-thickness-requirement for bows!!! They will stay in on top as long as: 1) she does not pull it out, 2) she is not super active (so basically she can just barely wear one for about 15 minutes at a time).

BUT - the hair at the back of her head and nape of her neck is getting a litle long, it touches her shoulders when it's wet. For the 4th of July, we tried a new hairstyle: the George Washington. You know, little pony tail with a bow? It was so darn cute, and Maggie didn't realize the bow was there, so it stayed in for a good portion of the morning.
We celebrated the 4th on the 3rd with Tyler's work. His boss had a big party at his house for the company replete with patriotic decor, Southern BBQ, a band, pony rides, a petting zoo, blow-up slide and AWESOME fireworks. Maggie enjoyed it all. Even the fireworks. She laid on the blanket and just watched, and didn't seem to mind the gun-shot-style noises they made. Notice that Tyler is sitting on the TOP of the playground and reaching down to swing Maggie.
