Brent was off yesterday so we enjoyed a day of festivities. Despite the clouds and rain showers, we headed to the pool in the morning. We did some swimming and ate a good BBQ lunch. They also had carnival games and bounce houses set up so the kids were thrilled to score lots of
junk, I mean prizes.
We have never taken the kids to see fireworks - I am not a fan of doing something with a lot of work and hassle and having the kids just melt down... But Griffin had really been talking about fireworks and asking to see them, so we took them last night to a parking deck downtown and watched fireworks from there!! (read: no traffic, no walking 10 minutes to find a place to sit, etc) We went we our friends the Burgners, packed some snacks, and just hung out for a while.
This girl is so photogenic! (just like her sister) and absolutely loves the camera!
