We went to a waterpark in town yesterday for the 4th. It was a blast. There were a lot of families from the base that went. The water was pretty cold, but the boys didn't seem to mind. After the waterpark, we came home and cooked out. Then, the boys, big boys included, did fireworks. It's a little strange to do fireworks when it's still light out. Barrett was still up at 11, when they did the "real" fireworks. So, he and I went outside to watch them. It was pretty cold, so we we're wrapped up in blankets. How funny is that? wearing a jacket on the 4th of July.
Peter definitely did not enjoy the fireworks. He freaked out and wore some little winter ear muffs the whole time. He kept calling them ear puffs.
