4th of July

OK so I tried to get the pics at the end of this post, but blogger isn't cooperating...

Waiting for the fireworks to start

Still waiting

I know this post is a little late, but hey, that's the story of my life.

We had a great weekend. Filled with family, fireworks, friends and food!

Saturday ~ I took Lexi to the Splash Station. It's a local waterpark here. They open the park from 9:30am - 10:30am for "Moms, Pops & Tots". Actually, they only open the zero depth pool for the little kids. This session is designed for toddlers and babies. We can take them in the morning, before the sun is too strong, and before the park opens to the general public. It was Lexi's first time (since it rained the 3 Saturdays prior). She LOVED it. But I felt SO bad for her. The pool has a little area with "geysers"...basically, fountains that come up from the ground. There were 3 little boys, probably around 3 playing, and Lexi toddled over to play. Well, as soon as she got there, they moved to another fountain. Lexi followed. They moved again, and again. Lexi followed each time. They finally went into the deeper water where she couldn't go. She wanted to play with them but they wouldn't play with her. Made me sad. She also wanted to go down the tube slide...but again, she couldn't. I couldn't take her up the stairs and be at the bottom to catch her. And the other parent's were busy with their kids...so I didn't want to ask. Next week, my mom is going with us, so at least Lexi can go down the slide.

We also took her to see the fireworks Saturday night. I was afraid that the loud noise would bother her, but she sat back in her stroller and pointed and smiled...so I think she liked them!

Sunday we spent at my sister's house. We took Lexi's little pool, so she got to "swim" and play with the fam. It was a long day, but she did good.

Here are some pics from the weekend.

The water park time sounds like a lot of fun!

Sounds like a great weekend! N liked the fireworks; I was freaked out -- being so close to the source was not a good thing. ; )
