Happy Fourth of July! To celebrate, we headed over to our friends’ house for a barbeque. We took a fruit plate (it’s Elmo, get it?! – Jace helped me make it and ate an impressive number of blueberries) and we took a plate of caprese salad (with homegrown basil and homegrown tomatoes – yay!).
Eventually, we cut them off from the fruit plate. Usually Jace and Jack play independently – near each other, but definitely not together. But this time it was different! They had a great time running in and out of the playhouse. They would open and close the windows and surprise each other. It was really fun to watch!
Then it was time for dinner. Jace looooves hot dogs. I think he’s going through a growth spurt, because he has been eating like crazy lately. He ate 3 hot dogs! Wasn’t very impressed with the corn on the cob though….
We had a mini fireworks show in the backyard. Very mini. But it was cute and the boys seemed to be pretty impressed. Jace really liked the cloud of smoke that each firework produced. He is all about clouds lately. Anyways, after eating a ton for dinner, then having cookies for dessert, we headed to the car to drive home. Jace got a hold of the fruit plate again and polished off the strawberries. At least it’s healthy, right?
It was a fun night. Jace got to bed a bit late, but it made it easier to convince him to sleep in a tiny bit in the morning. Then we headed downstairs for a healthy breakfast. A popsicle and Elmo on the iPad. Yay! Jace finished up the day by helping Adam build our new dresser and then playing outside and helping me pick tomatoes. A relaxing weekend!
