So... I was really sick all week, so our 4th was uneventful. #2 kid spent it with friends. Fine. Family wasn't around, so we went to our FAVORITE place to watch fireworks. The Moraga country Club. Best ever. You sit on the golf course and the fireworks go off right over your head! It lasted 18 min. 45 sec. (so says the guys next to us)
Mom and Becca watching, too
The grand finale is always our favorite.
Saturday, Becca had a little tournament, 4 games in Benicia. They won all 4 games and she went 7 for 7!
Then a little swimming at Andrew's friend's house. Emma perfected the belly flop off the diving board - first time ever! The life vest took the impact.
Sunday was a special day, Andrew received the Aaronic Priesthood. (I guess the only pics I ever have of him are playing baseball)
Being the best mom ever, I agreed to sleeping in the tent with A & E. (reality check pic!) We have a blowup mattress that keeps air for a couple hours. Needless to say, I slept horribly, plus I woke up in the middle of the night (3am) itchy and I had the hives. The benadryl helped me to sleep the rest of the night. (I think Katelynn gave me them. She had them all last week!)
Today Becca and dad are off to Great America for her 8th bday (in Feb). It's a tradition that my family had. When you turn 8 you get a special day with dad, in leu if a party, to celebrate being baptized. I think they're having fun, she's already been on the Demon! Now I'm off to Costco with some bored children.....
