Ross had a three day weekend so we started partying Friday. On Friday we went to the beach for a few hours. Rhys would start walking from the shallow towards deeper water until it started getting in his mouth but even then he still wanted to go deeper. The boys loved swimming at the beach! Later we walked to the Rib Fest and got some ribs and ice cream. That night Ross and the boys set the tent up in our backyard. Gavin and Christian really liked sleeping in the tent and thought it is was really cool that there was a firefly in the tent. The 4th of July didn't feel like the 4th because it rained on and off all day long, which I'm so used to it being sunny and hot. That evening we went to our friends' house and had some awesome ribs and delicious blackberry pie with homemade ice cream. The boys loved playing with their cats or more like teasing and torturing them. And when we watched the fireworks Rhys just ran around in circles where we were sitting and every once in a while he would stop and say WOW, it was cute. The boys did sparklers which I don't have pictures of because I forgot the camera at home. We had a great and fun weekend!
