Happy 4th of July!

We had a lovely morning: coffee, breakfast, lots of playing, and then we went to church with the Craigs. After church, we came home and had a quick lunch and headed over to the Country Club for pool time. The kids had a great time swimming, going on the slide and diving board, and playing. It was in the low 80s and somewhat overcast, not as humid as it was in Fort Worth. After an hour or so of swimming, Kourtney and I took Marin and Ava Kate back to the house for naps. The rest of the group came back around 4:30.

We all cleaned up and got ready to go back to the Country Club for a tasty 4th of July dinner buffet, playtime, and fireworks. The rain came while the kids were playing at the different activities – the kids decided they still wanted to go on a pony ride, so they got drenched with big smiles plastered on as the ponies circled round. Eventually the rain moved everyone back inside.

After getting some balloon creations made from the clowns, we packed up, deciding to skip the fireworks. The kids were so exhausted from staying up late last night and a day at the pool. Mason even threw up a little bit – he was beside himself tired and completely worn out. We got back to the Craigs and the dads put the kids to bed while Kourtney and I went out to get some fireworks (for tomorrow night – 4th of July observed) and drive around. We came back to a nice, quiet evening!

Mason: “Mama, I don’t feel good, and I am so tired.” {sad}

Ava Kate: “I want a dog.” {balloon creation}
Marin: “I want a flower.”
