4th of july weekend

Three-day weekends are pretty great to begin with... but Friday we both got out of work early, which was even better. It gave us some playtime in the yard.

Aww, my boy.

Saturday, Trav slept in while Gwen and I ran out the local farmer's market. It was pretty hot and steamy already, but we wandered around for a bit and shared some freshly made blueberry-strawberry lemonade, a peach, and a slice of cinnamon swirl bread. Mmm.

The rest of the day was pretty low-key, did some chores, etc. Gwen took a nap in her crib, for what I think was the first time ever! (We're working on doing it all the time now.) Those with toddlers... do you have a pre-nap routine? She's definitely fighting sleep. Obviously we just started going down in the crib, so it will take some getting used to, but just wondering what everyone else does.

Sunday we had our Ro and Pat over with the girls, for a little grilling. It was a lot of fun and Gwen had a great time playing in the pool with GG.

Baby butt!

It was a really nice day.

Monday (HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!) we all got to sleep in, as Gwen didn't really wake up until 8 (unheard of)!! Trav let me sleep a bit more, then we headed over to our community's 4th of July celebration. It was in the park next to our house. We listened to some music, rode the little train, played on the playground, and ate some shaved ice.

After that, we hid in our house because it was horrendously humid and gross out!! After a brief reprise, summer is back with a vengeance.

Last night we fell asleep to the sounds of fireworks in the distance. 

For today, its back to work like normal... though thankfully only a 4-day week. And only 10-days until vacation!
