I decided to take full advantage of this holiday week, by taking a break from school, and basking in some summertime laziness and fun with the kids (and Michael too!). We made watermelon blueberry popcicles, which are yummy if you really like watermelon… and I don’t all that much. 😛
We played in our tiny backyard pool, made freshly squeezed lemonade, watched movies, went on a nature scavenger hunt, swam with friends at their pool (where Haden had a semi-scary adventure in the deep end!), took naps, and spent our holiday playing at a sprayground, cooking out and our evening enjoying fireworks. It was my children’s very first time seeing fireworks. It was momentous.
I had to hold my fingers over Miss Addison’s ears. She kept telling me, “Loud! Loud!”
Haden thought they were beautiful, but wished they were EVEN bigger. Boys. *shakes head*
