With every firecracker that sounded like a bomb had just gone off I'd find a little Toddler attached to my leg within seconds asking me, "What's that mommy?!" "It's just fireworks." "Fireworks?" A minute later another one goes off and we repeat the first step. I think that lasted for about an hour until I reversed the question on him and every time a I heard a boom I'd ask him, "What's that Toddler?" I guess it worked because he stopped asking me every minute.
My fourth of July was unplanned, hectic and there were moment when I should have acted in grace and not frustration. After the confusion of where we were going in the morning settled down the day turned into one of the best fourth of July's we've had.
Day camping at Jetty Island was the best idea for the beautiful fourth of July weather we ended up having. I think we spent a total of 5 hours there which is the longest we've spent at a park just doing nothing, but playing in the water and sand. I brought a yummy lunch of jojo's and chicken nuggets with carrots, a yummy meal for a day at the beach.
I just love that beach and will be spending most of my summer days there in my sons tent.
When we got home we all crashed for a long nap before the fireworks. Toddler was so cute at the firework show. This year he was completely into it, he even sang along to the songs that they played. When I told him how nice his firework commentary was he said, "thank you mommy" ever so sweetly. I think it melted our hearts and made us so proud to be parents of such an amazing boy.
Today was spent cleaning up the house, rearranging my bedroom and a little shopping before the in-laws get here tomorrow all the way from Slovakia. My father-in-law will be here for 2 weeks and my mother-in-law for a month.
Tried something new and put mint leaves into my coffee.
Toddler's yummy lunch.
My desk at the moment.
I can't believe I waited so long to paint the insides of my plain vases! This DIY project was so fun and I stocked up on LOTS of sampler paints for more projects.
