Busy Holiday Weekend Coming Up
Today we had my friend, Michelle and her two kids (Charlie and Evelyn) over for a play date. Nate was up in his chair and loved watching Charlie rough around with Owen. And Evelyn is darling (she's six months younger than Owen). Future couple I predict! It was great for Owen to play with other kids. I wish he could do it more!!!
Tomorrow we plan on getting Nate in the pool and Saturday we have the neighborhood 4th of July parade. Unfortunately, it's at 11:00 this year and it's supposed to be 100 degrees Saturday! I've already decorated his chair, but we'll just have to see if we can go. If not, no big deal, because he'll be all patriotic in his chair for the fireworks that evening. Our neighborhood is always fun on the 4th. Lots of kids and fireworks around. They also have a pool party every year with a cookout. It's during the boys' naptimes but maybe next year Owen can go. They are having a military fly by during the party. Hopefully, Trey and I will get to enjoy that as we relax during the boys' naptimes on rafts in the pool!
Everything is going well and Nate is enjoying the summer. Owen just started swimming lessons. Pretty much beginner stuff, but it will help. Next comes August - big birthdays for the boys!
I'll post 4th of July pics after the weekend. Have a great Independence Day and GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!
p.s. One new thing Owen is doing. He's able to get up in Nate's bed now and wants to do it all the time! He likes to rub Nate's legs and love on him. It's the sweetest thing EVER! Nate's not too sure about it. He gets nervous and afraid Owen is going to hurt him. Owen is very gentle most of the time, but sometimes we have to get him down and of course, Owen screams bloody murder! He loves his big brother! Touches my heart!
