Today, I'm so excited to share what the boys and I got in the Christmas in July gift exchange hosted by Jennifer and Courtney! We got a FUN package in the mail from Shelly and Josephine from Windy City Baby!
Every other summer we do a vacation with my parents and my brothers' families. We've been to Colorado, DC, Wisconsin Dells, and this year was Omaha. It was nice because we only had to drive two hours, and we stayed for almost a week. The location was perfect; my parents rented a spacious home outside of Omaha that had its own pond, a big yard, beautiful deck, and a hot tub. We took a trip to the zoo and the children's museum. We spent lots of time at the pond where Henry learned to fish. He can now bait his own hook and cast! I even got to go golfing and managed to par a hole, which is a feat since I haven't golfed in two years. It was a fantastic trip.
The Fourth of July is probably my favorite holiday. I love, love, love summer and a holiday that matches all that is summer is just perfect. The past few years, kiddos have changed that a bit. Early bedtimes don't allow for seeing fireworks and parades happen during naptime kind of hinder the full celebration of the holiday. Not trying to be a downer, but it's true. Because we didn't get to see fireworks on the 4th, we thought we'd try to catch them at our local minor league's game. Every Friday home game they put off fireworks at the end.
So, we packed up, and headed out. This picture was right when we sat down. Everyone was pretty happy. We got some food, and settled in.
