Happy Independence Day! (part 2)

After we had a chance to come home and rest from the breakfast (which included taking a nap for me, but not for the boys), we headed up to the grandparents’ house for a fun 4th of July soiree. Aunt J was in town so the boys were having lots of fun playing with her.

We got a good report card for E from the night before, which was awesome, and I was glad to see him again. Everyone headed out to the pool, and we tried to let E sit on the steps without getting his ears in the water, but it was too much of a temptation to swim away, so he had to come out. Poor guy wasn’t excited about that one. (He’s under strict doctor’s orders to not submerge his head underwater unless he’s wearing ear plugs, since he had tubes put in last week. Not even in the bathtub. And since we hadn’t had a chance to get his ear plugs yet, we didn’t want to risk it.)


The ‘trial’ period of hanging out in the water.




W was having fun playing in the pool with his favorite person in the world, Papa!


He likes Dad, too. :)


Although, he was very upset when either of them would jump from the rocks into the pool because he was very uneasy with them going underwater! It was too cute, I don’t know if you can see real well, but in that second photo he’s mad at the hubby for jumping off the rocks!


The ‘trial’ period ended when he almost fell off the step and went underwater. Luckily he caught himself before he did go under, but it made me too nervous so he had to come out. Like I said, he wasn’t too happy about that, but my job is too keep him safe and healthy, not make sure he has fun all the time. It’s tough, but somebody’s got to do it! :)

Soon after, though, we all went back inside, and the boys changed back into the 4th of July shirts that I had made for them. I thought they turned out pretty cute! I saw the idea from Make It and Love It and just tweaked it a little.






And I had to include this one, even though it didn’t turn out, because their expressions are classic!


W hanging out with his buddy.


Silly goose!


My sweeties.


And apparently even without swimming hard, E was quite worn out from the day! This is what he looked like after coming in from the car at 6:45pm. He slept from then on to bedtime! I suppose it’s because he’s still pretty weak from 7 days without much more to eat than popsicles. :)

I hope you all had as wonderful a holiday as we did. Happy 4th of July, y’all!
