Celebrating the 4th around here

We had a fun and relaxing day. It involved a walk early on, since before 8 am is the only time its cool enough to move outside. Back inside it was a bit of reading, a bit of this and a bit of that.

Blueberries for Sal. Read like Daddy.

For some reason, Little Man doesn't like his water bottle in the room with him when he sleeps. AT nap time, he got up, put his water bottle outside the door and went back in to nap.

Read like Daddy. Yes, this makes for a great day around here.

Afternoon fun.

After nap time, we headed out to let Little Man play outside (even though its freaking hot, he is just happier having outside time). We got the grill going and put out corn and brats.

Now, though, the ATVs of the neighborhood are out roaring around and firecrackers will start in the next few hours. Poor Little Man, having ‘gone to bed’ an hour ago, was, for a bit, opening his door and declaring ‘its a bicycle’ every time an ATV went by. Now, he’s just calling from bed. Here’s to hoping he falls asleep before the fireworks start!

  1. I love Blueberries for Sal! Our neighbor gave it to Abby for her birthday last year, and I didn’t believe she’d be that interested in the book because of the single-color pictures. But she loves it! And now she likes to eat blueberries, too, especially when I let her eat them out of a little pail. 🙂

    • While camping out in Wisconsin, we found wild black raspberries and Little Man was all about them. He even got the hang of picking the ripe ones. Not sure if the book helped, but I like to think it did. 😛
