4th of July

We had a wonderful 4th of July weekend together. We stayed home this year but that didn't slow us down. The night before the 4th we got a babysitter and went for a date night. We joined our neighborhood friends on a boat tie up in the river where we could see a great display of fireworks. We had a great time and it was so nice to enjoy time with my hubby and a few glasses of wine uninterrupted.
We spent the actual 4th down on our neighborhood beach. Avery and Grayson love it down there and we are so close to the house it makes it easy. We grilled an early dinner at the beach and then brought them up for a quick snooze in hopes that they would make it to see the fireworks. I wasn't sure how  Grayson would do as he gets finicky around loud noises. Kevin had the bright idea of putting his gun ear muffs on him. I didn't think Grayson would leave them on but sure enough he kept them on the whole time and after a few minutes he actually seemed to be okay with the fireworks!
What's more fun than playing in a tube on land. It was like a trampoline for toddlers!
Earmuffs worked!
On Saturday we went into downtown Annapolis and spent the day on Aunt Rosie and Uncle Shawn's boat. It was A & G's first time on a boat. They loved it! They didn't even seem to mind their life jackets.
Happy 4th Everyone!
