independence day

this year we got to celebrate the 4th with papa john! papa is visiting for almost 2 weeks and we are so excited to have some good fun with him. on the 4th we headed down to hilo just before lunch time to check out the hilo bay cook off. um, yum. lots of good food, we will for sure be back next year! after we filled our bellies we walked over to the classic car show. we didn't actually know this was going on, but it ended up being a lot of fun. coen and papa had a blast checking out all the cars, annnnnnnnd they had a live band (perfect for dancing... just ask coen.) we baked in the sun for a few hours, cooled off with some shave ice and then head over to a beach just north of town to watch some surfers. then we headed home and grilled up some brats. after dinner coen took a bath, got in his pj's and then we headed outside to do some fireworks. he had no clue what fireworks were, but he was excited. once they started he was hooked. he was pretty tripped out by the sparklers. to his defense sparklers are pretty cool. what a day! we headed up for bed when the fireworks ran out. i wonder if he had dreams of pretty sparkly colors all night?

happy independence day!
