We had a terrific July 4th weekend. I can't even remember what we did last year, but I think it involved an incredibly hot house, and running back and forth to Wal Mart. Needless to say, this was spectacular in comparison! We spent the afternoon at Liz and Matt's house, mingling with friends, and eating good food. Liz and Matt have a beautiful new swingset, a water table, and a sandbox. Of course, our little lady was in heaven. Fortunately, she wanted nothing to do with the sandbox, which was great, considering the fact that I wasn't really excited about giving a 9pm bath that night! She also enjoyed feeding the 2 doggies, and running around in a bathing suit and her party shoes. Jonah and Mia, who are only 3 weeks apart, spent a good part of the afternoon flirting... Well, maybe that's an exaggeration, but they certainly were sweet next to each other.
"Ryan and I both love shows. After we did tons of playing, our Mommies gave in and turned on Sesame Street."
"Jack the doggie likes beans, burgers, chicken, and quinoa. He doesn't like onions, though."
"Jonah and Mia are almost exactly the same age. Mia is 3 weeks older, so she's much wiser."
"Daddy and Matt are much bigger than their babies."
"Daddy loves babies, but I think he's glad these 2 aren't twins. Right, Daddy?"
