Our Fourth of July Weekend


Sorry for the radio silence late last week.  We've had family in town, 4th of July and Ethan's second birthday.  I'm finally coming down off the high and let's just say, I'm pooped!  But I wanted to check in to let you know what we've been up to these last few days.


On Wednesday night, we went out on the boat for the first time.  The weather has been amazing lately so it was nice to enjoy it from the water.


Ethan also had his maiden voyage for the year...he was not too sure about his life jacket or with how fast the boat went, but he really loved checking out the sailboats once we got out on the lake.


On 4th of July, we went on a little walk and enjoyed the beach.


Ethan especially enjoyed the water. 


He also indulged in an ice cream...you can tell how exhausted he is here.  Pooped like mama!  As a result, we stayed in that night and didn't catch the fireworks.  They weren't scheduled to start until quarter 'til 10 and we had a big day ahead of us on Saturday.  


Ethan celebrated his 2nd birthday on Saturday.  It was a blast!  I'll share more photos later this week, but until then...here are some details.


Yesterday we were pretty low key.  We did escape to the beach for a couple hours late in the afternoon.  It was nice to just unwind from our crazy busy weekend!

How was your 4th of July?  Did you stay up late to watch the fireworks show?
