I know I am a little late posting this since July is almost over, but I actually remembered to take pictures of my kids and wanted to post them. We had a great 4th of July. Every year, my parent's neighborhood has a little parade for the kids. Meg has been in it the past two years. She is always mad when she goes by, so the pictures don't turn out very cute. Oh well. We swam in our little pool in our backyard and then went to my parent's house for a BBQ later. We had a great time. I was so prepared and brought my kids' pjs and bath stuff and thought I would have them all ready for bed so they would fall asleep on the way home from fireworks. I bathed Meg first and sent her outside for rootbeer floats and then took Will inside for his bath. I came out to find Meg soaking wet in her jammies. She had made her way away from the crowd and had decided to take a dip in the little pool in the yard. Dave and I both thought that the other person was watching her so she snuck away without anyone noticing. She came back around and announced "I swimming!" I was so mad that all of my hard work had gone to waste and she was all gross again (the dogs like to spend their time in the pool too). I am so glad that she didn't drown. After the fact, it's a funny story remember. She is so independent!
Meg, Will and my cousin Jack
