I love this year because it gets to be Joshua’s first everything! Yesterday was his first 4th of July.
I love the 4th because it is in the heat of summer time, which I love. It is all about family, sunshine, BBQ and happiness. Yesterday was just that. Joshua and I started out our day by going for a walk on the levy. It was a beautiful morning and if you go out before 10:00am no one is really out yet so it was very peaceful. Baby loves his stroller rides. 🙂
After that we went to Pioneer Park for America’s birthday party. There were all kinds of games and activities for the kiddies to participate in. The place was packed! My dad works for P1FCU (one of the major sponsors of the event) so he was manning the sack races station. Joshua got to spend the afternoon in the park with his grandma and papa. It was fun.
On the way home from the park I stopped by Kmart and bought Joshua a surprise.
His first swimming pool! I wasn’t sure what he would think but I think he liked it. I think what he loved most was that he got to be naked, totally diaper free, and that was the best part. But he didn’t seem to mind the water and loved the duck. 🙂
Nathan BBQ’d marinated chicken breasts while I had baby red potatoes in the crock pot. As for the fireworks? We were all in bed by 8:30. Next year we’ll do the firework thing when Joshua is old enough to actually watch them.
It was a good day.
