Fourth of July
We had a very relaxing Fourth of July this year. We were supposed to meet some friends at the park to cook out, let the kids play, and watch fireworks. Sadly, Jessica was sick and they couldn't make it. We decided we would go anyway back to the same place we went last year. We got all of our things set up and the next thing we know, we hear someone asking if they could crash our party. Two families we met up with last year at the same park were coming back again with their small group. One of the families had a son close to Caleb's age and they had fun playing together. There were plenty of younger kids for Josiah to run around with as well.
For some reason, this park isn't crowded. Maybe it's the ants since this is the only place I've ever seen ants out here in California. The good part is we have perfect viewing of several fireworks shows. Once again, Josiah was scared of the fireworks. Josiah, Levi and I sat in a chair while Josiah closed his eyes. Once they were over, he was fine. Maybe next year he will be able to enjoy them. Overall, we had a good time, and I'm glad we didn't choose to stay home. And I love putting my family in matching Fourth of July t-shirts. I know my years are limited, and I'm glad my husband doesn't complain about it.
