Fourth of July Fun

We had a great time celebrating the 4th! We spent the weekend at my parent's house with our family, and just enjoyed being on the lake & eating LOTS!! :) We didn't let the rain ruin our good time...at least Sunday & Monday were nice - I ended up with quite the sunburn! Check out my little man...couldn't you just die from the cuteness?! He didn't actually swim or get in the lake, but he decided to dress for the occasion anyway. :)Saturday morning we took all the kids to a local parade as well as a frog jumping contest. It was so funny to watch! Here are all the kids before the parade, then my niece Ellie with a frog - eeck, and some pictures from them watching the parade. Manny did great, and slept most of the time. The sirens from the firetrucks woke him up, but he didn't cry and quickly went back to sleep...I guess I lucked out!When we got home, the little man decided to show-off what a big boy & handsome little thing he is!It was rainy most of the day, but that didn't stop our fun! The boys decided to go out on the Sea Doo, but had a little mishap and tipped right after they pulled off the dock - too funny!Some of us opted to stay dry up at the house. :) My mom and niece Olivia watched from the deck, while E and I caught a nap inside.

That night we went and watched some fireworks, and also stopped by a firework stand to get some stuff for the kids to shoot off at home. The next night they put on quite the show for us!

It was such a fun weekend, and Manny did really great and even slept through the fireworks that were being shot off til 1:30 in the morning. He's still only sleeping through the night occasionally, but at least it's some! I have a post coming on all this mommy business. :) Hope everyone had a lovely 4th!
