Happy July 4th, friends! Have a beautiful day celebrating America with family and friends! Be safe as well! We are having a quiet one at home, but we did get some sparklers to do tonight with Rocco! We think he will like them, and we don’t plan on going to see fireworks, its just too much with the baby. She goes to be at 8, and we really don’t know if Rocco would like them, as some noises do scare him. Next year will be the year to try for sure!
We had a GREAT birthday celebration for Rocco this past weekend with my family! We were so grateful they came to celebrate the day with us!
One thing that didn’t happen, me taking LOTS of pics or being on social media. I really just unplugged at the party and wanted to ENJOY. My kids are growing up so fast, it blows my mind. I hardly get to have all of my family together, so it was nice to enjoy the time fully together. I did get some pics with my good camera, kind of wish I did them sooner, as Rocco was already overwhelmed. But, this is OUR NORMAL.
I remember I used to stress so much over stuff, especially when it comes to Rocco. We just go with the flow and help him handle things that make him upset, the best we can. SO many people ask why my son has his hands on his ears a lot, well he has autism and that is just something he does when he is stressed out or overwhelmed. I share that to spread autism awareness, as maybe a child you see is doing the same and you will understand why. Not saying all kids on the spectrum do this, just sharing that mine does.
Life is crazy and beautiful when it comes to family pics, I am just happy we get some for beautiful memories and for my kids to have one day.
You got a baby not looking, Rocco stressed out, and a teen who looks like he is being tortured! LOL. This is our beautiful and crazy life, and I love it. So grateful for my loved ones, so grateful Rocco had a beautiful day, and sharing some pics from it!
We all wore NASA shirts, wish you could of seen our shirts better! That is one thing that I wish we got, a clear picture of all of us with NASA shirts showing, oh well! Some of my family even wore some, which was cute!
Rocco’s 4th Birthday <3
It was a great day! Mike and I had chicken, stuffed shells, pulled pork, and sides catered from Giant Eagle, and everyone loved it! We didn’t do Chipotle this year, as we haven’t had it since March! CRAZY! Mike got sick from it, and just have not had it since. Maybe soon!
I am just glad my little man had a great day and we had our loved ones there to celebrate with us!
Today Mike, me, and the kids are headed to the Tanger Outlets for some shopping, having some pool time outside with little man, and relaxing! No big plans here! Happy Birthday, America!
See you guys tomorrow with some July 4th Highlights!
