4th of July

July 11, 2011

I forgot to mention earlier that we had a really fun Fourth of July this year.  Isaac wasn’t able to stay up late enough to see the fireworks (which we could see from our front porch!), but he did enjoy the parade we saw in the morning.

It was a short and sweet little parade with lots of fire trucks and police cars, along with a high school marching band, all of which Isaac loved. 

Oh and there were hula hoops to play with while we waited for the parade to start:

Hot red-faced kids waiting for the fire trucks to come by!

Later in the day we had a picnic and sprinkler party in Dulcie’s backyard.  Sylvie just got a new child sized picnic table; Diana and I tested it out.  Our legs are a little too long…

The kids ran around with Henry’s new golf club set.

Sylvie has a special affinity for Jamie; she will actually smile when he takes her picture.  She is usually looking sullen when I try to take her picture!

Isaac enjoys dipping chips in anything…

Isaac is a little nervous…he wanted to keep some distance between himself and the water coming out of the hose.

Sprinkler party morphed into a pool party.  Notice that Sylvie is still smiling at Jamie??
