We had a pretty quiet 4th of July this year. We stayed home and enjoyed the AC and just being together! Lindsey, Michael and Bailey came over with some fireworks on the 4th, so the boys did get to see their first fireworks before we put them to bed. Since we live in the county there were fireworks EVERYWHERE! We just sat outside and enjoyed them from our front porch.

Is he laughing at Lindsey or the fireworks?!

The boys had their first real paint experience on Sunday. I had painted their hands and feet for some "memento" items but, being an early childhood teacher, I don't consider that "painting". I put newspaper down on our patio and gave them some paint and a couple utensils. They were more interested in painting themselves than the paper though! They are just starting to not put everything directly into their mouths, although they did try a few times! They were quickly bored with the paint and the swing set lured them over. Before long the cats led them to the baby pool where they splashed around for a bit. They are becoming very adventurous and move quickly from one activity/toy to the next!
Unfortunately, all these pictures were taken right away and so we didn't get any when they were done and had a lot of blue paint on them!
