The days leading up to July 4 were rainy and unseasonably cold. We had plans to be at the lake all weekend but unfortunately the weather had different ideas! But we made the best of it and spent the day at the pool with my parents and Dustin and Christina. It didn't rain during the day so we were able to swim and the sun even popped out from time to time. I should probably rephrase the "we were able to swim" part... the water was absolutely freezing and there was no way I was putting my body through that. haha Adam, my dad and Dustin were good sports though and swam with the kids. And of course the freezing water didn't phase the kids in the least.
This is what Heaven is like for a 3 year old...
Cheetoes, peanut butter and jelly sandwich, juice box, Disney Jr. on TV and super heroes within reach.
Landon is swimming a lot without his floaties now. He kicks his little legs so hard. His favorite thing to do is having Adam push him all the way down to the bottom to pick up a pool toy and swim back up.
He was swimming from the side to my dad. Proud of this boy!

Boys and their toys!
We grilled burgers and ate outside. It was so nice and relaxing. Christina and I left to buy some fireworks and then we made our way to the park to watch the firework show. Due to the weather and more rain in the forecast that night, they changed the time to 8:30 instead of 9:00 which was a good thing because as we were leaving around 9:05, it came a down pour!
Love these kiddos
We went back to my parents to let the kids play with sparklers. Again, it was pouring rain so we did it on the front porch which caused a smokey mess!
We got home late and went straight to bed!
