4th of July

I hope everyone had a terrific 4th of July weekend! Our family sure enjoyed our extended weekend. GG and Aunt Shari traveled from Springfield to spend the weekend with us. We spent Friday afternoon at the Gardner Aquatic Center (thanks Marietta for the tip on this fab location!) I strongly suggest visiting the water park if you haven't already done so. We had a fun filled afternoon of floating in the lazy river, splashing in the baby pool, playing in the water play area, eating lots o' snacks & popsicles, then more water fun. We were knuckle heads and forgot our cameras, so ... no pics this go around.
Friday evening we grilled out and spent the remainder of the evening outdoors.

Gabrielle loved the bag of fireworks that her Daddy bought for her. She wasn't a bit intimidated by the snap pops, sparklers and various other fireworks he purchased.

I love this picture of my sweet baby boy!
We stretched his schedule and he proved to be a perfect angel all weekend.

GG & Aunt Shari are both very hands on which provides such a great break for Travis and I. They jump right in with house duties, gathering the necessaries to get out the door, helped with diaper changes, etc. This 4th will definitely go down as one of my favorites throughout my married life.
We had soooo much family fun! Stay Tuned - More to come on Saturdays events

Glad you had a great 4th. We had fun too, but Ethan was afraid of the fireworks, so I spent the 3rd year in a row inside hanging with him.
