4th of July

What a great 4th of July weekend we have had. We spent lots of time with family and friends. We are so blessed to live in this country and have the freedoms we have. Thank you to all the men and women who have served and are continuing to serve our country so we may have these freedoms. Daniels first 4th of July at home was extremely busy. We had a pig roast at Jason and Ashlees on Saturday. We had so much fun and had many good friends come in from out of town. Daniel got to meet many people who have been waiting a long time to meet him. He was a trooper with only a morning nap. We took the pack and play to their house and at 8:00 put him to sleep. When we left he woke up and I was so afraid that he would be up forever. He was a happy cheery baby for the drive home and then as soon as we got home he was asleep! I have the happiest best baby ever! God has truly blessed us with Daniel.

Here is Daniel playing with his new truck at the Pig Roast:

The 4th was very relaxing, we spent the day at my mom and dads. It was hot so we went swimming and then watched my brother RJ set off some of his fireworks purchase. I was afraid Daniel would be scared but he loved it. No tears at all, he really focused on what was going on and clapped when it was over. We had a great day and ended it with going to watch the fireworks at a friends house, where RJ put on another fireworks display. What a great day and Daniel had so much fun playing with his friends and cousin Ray. He was so tired he actually fell asleep during the fireworks. He woke up before we left and then fell asleep again in the car. He did not wake up when we got home even through changing his diaper and clothes and laying him down. He was so cute! I don't remember what the 4th was like without him!

What a great day and night. We could not have asked for a better time and a better 4th with Daniel. We are so blessed in more ways than one!
