The week before the 4th, we headed to our favorite flag wall for some photos. It was a lovely 116* and we enjoyed the mild weather (actually we were quite toasty)! After that I bought us all a nice Frosty to cool down. Sheesh it was a hot day.
For the actual holiday weekend, we headed up to the mountains to the family cabin to cool down and visit family. We enjoyed lots of nature, some small naps with a wiggly babe on a hammock, and beautiful scenery. The small town parade we hit up was the best. WP was half asleep but woke up quickly when he noticed they were throwing candy and toys! Grandpa even took the kiddies for a ride in one of the parade wagons when it was all over. We left Miss B at home because she had to work (growing up is the pits I say). So after the parade and some playing in the park, we headed home quick to be with her.
This summer has been non stop. I keep thinking I will gets tons of projects done and I don't know why because we have been running from one thing to the next trying to stay away from the heat as much as possible and keep kids busy...not to mention the camps and the family visits. I have mixed feelings about school starting next week. I am ready for routine and a clean(er) house, but I love being able to pick up and go whenever we want. Ready or not though, here it comes. This week is one last rush for school clothes and supplies. Annnd trying to fit in the last bits of summer fun.
