After a quick nap it was off to the festivities where lots and lots of flag waving happened!
Jack loves the water. This picture was prior to him falling into the hot tub. Don't worry, he landed on the first step. Ben likes to stick his feet in...and throw rocks into the water. Boys are silly.
Both boys enjoying the kiddie pool...with shorts and diapers on. Why did I even bother to take off their shirts? Better yet, why didn't I just put them in their swim diapers and swimsuits when they woke up? I'm still learning I guess.... Unfortunately poor Jack got a bit of chafing from my mistake.
Lily thinks those boys are CRAZY to get so wet and dirty.
Sweet Bennie bringing Mommy a flower!
Not to be outdone...Lily found an even BIGGER flower to bring to Mommy!
Nonnie's baked beans were a big hit!
But, the best part of it all is spending time with the people we love!
...and the really, really, really tall people!
Hope everyone had a great 4th! Happy birthday America. But, most of all, thanks to all of the men and women who give their lives for our freedom. We are blessed to live in such a great country.
