straight out of the camera (SOOC)
I had to include it because Xandra's eyes just blew me away.
We went to our town's 4th of July parade.
Yep, we braved the insane heat to sit on a curb & watch a parade.
Daddy walked in it, since he's a council member.
But mostly, the kids were just thrilled to grab all the candy that was thrown out!
Can't you see the enthusiasm on their faces?!!
They were thrilled, I tell ya!!
Ok. Maybe "thrilled" is too strong a word.
We were so HOT!!
And to top it off, we totally missed seeing Matt!
In the evening we went to Papa's house for a cookout.
We celebrated with bubbles this year.
Though it didn't last too long.
It was just too hot!
All told, it was a good holiday, even without the fireworks.
I hope we get to see them next year.
We haven't been up to much around here lately.
Again - the weather.
It's really hindered our activities.
The kiddos officially started swim lessons yesterday.
They did better than I thought they would, but they each need to learn to trust their instructor a bit more.
Hopefully, it will be even better next week.
I'm going to try to get some pictures of them in the next couple weeks.
I had to include this last picture, even though it has nothing to do with the 4th.
I took it this morning while the kids were wrestling with daddy, after church.
I love the joy!
Hope everyone has a great week!!
