Any excuse to come hang out at my parents house where we can just send the girls out back to the pool instead of packing a bag and driving somewhere to swim. (Sometimes it's tempting to just come live here for the summer!)
There has been lots of swimming. BabySlimJim had his first pool experience. Both girls have made huge improvements in swimming in the past couple weeks. MiniM.E. can dive off the diving board and fetch diving toys from the bottom of the deep end, and LittleL.G. is making great progress towards swimming by herself.
Lots of jumping, swinging and hanging around.
Yesterday we found fireworks in Portsmouth, NH. The girls had a street dance party and all three kids loved the fireworks.
Tonight we were all tired from lots of long weekdays and big weekends. Originally we planned on going to the 4th fireworks here in Concord like we used to do when I was a kid, but Daddy had to go home to work tomorrow morning and we all decided it would be more fun to take late night swims and have a fire on the deck and light off some of our own fireworks. And most importantly get to bed before midnight! Happy 4th of July!
