Happy 4th of July!!!

OK, I know this is a bit late :) We ended up being gone almost all day at the park with my family and didn't get home until 12:30 last night. We had a lot of fun. We barbecued, sat around for hours doing nothing, then watched the fireworks. It was nice. Except for Jason throwing up all over himself after choking on a carrot. Luckily I'd brought extra pants for him, but he went shirtless the rest of the day. And then changing his poopy underwear in a little port-a-potty wasn't fun either. Jakey loved Grandma's homemade rootbeer and we had to keep trying to stop him from getting more cuz he was spilling it all over. So by the end of the day he was stripped down to his diaper cuz his clothes were soaked. I didn't have to worry about the boys being afraid of the fireworks, because by that time they were exhausted from the long day. Jakey fell asleep before they even started, and Jason curled up on my brother's lap and fell asleep halfway through. Our long day ended with it taking us 2 hours to get home, normally a 30min drive at most. It took almost an hour just to get out of the park, then another 45 mins fighting the crazy traffic to get to the freeway. Amazing how many people were out there.

Anyway, so that was our fun day :) I hope everyone else had a great day! God bless our country and the men and women who serve it.
