We spent the holiday with my parents, sisters and some extended family at my sisters lake house. It was great to be there with everyone because my girls LOVE playing with their cousins. My sister kids 10, 8, 5 can entertain them endlessly and the girls squeal with delight at the fun they have with their big cousins.

While the west coast is dealing with record high temps on the east coast is just won’t stop raining. We have had seveer storms on a regular basis the past few months and today was no different. We got lucky, the clouds broke for a bit in the morning. We got to take a nice long boat ride,Fourth_of_july

Talia and Jordan really enjoyed it.

But by the time we were heading back the rain started falling, we had a sun shade that helped some, but we were pretty wet by the time we got home.

After a couple quick rain showers the sun came out again, we all headed down to the dock for a swim. Talia and Jordan played in the water for a few minutes then decided it wasn’t for them. The bigger cousins were jumping off the dock into the water. I was siting near the edge and another grown up was in the water just below me. Talia walked up the edge an pretended like she was going to jump, we all said good job, nice try. The next thing I know she is flying off the dock and landing in the water. I should mention we have a strict rule that kids are required to wear a buckled life vest at all times on the dock and boats, no questions or exceptions.
She was quite startled but totally fine, she didn’t even swallow any water, she wasn’t about to jump again but enjoyed getting everyone else to jump in on her command. The good thing about the storm/sun/storm/sun you never get bored of any one thing and the day seems to last forever. Which I am ok with.

Hope you enjoyed your holiday! Do you have a holiday tradition or do you celebrate in a new way each year?

    We’ve had boiling hot weather AND rain (of course, steamy hot rain which is the worst) the past few days. Luckily it stayed nice enough through the 4th of July to have a great barbecue and time with family! My son is two, so we’re still starting to figure out our family traditions — this year we celebrated my husband’s birthday, since he had to work late on his real birthday the day before.

    Lovely photos — the boat trip sounds fun!
