Max got up with the sun for his first holiday and was soon followed by big brother Jack. After a quick breakfast and letting Daddy sleep in for a little while longer, we got the boys dressed in their red, white and blue outfits and off we went for a walk before it became ungodly hot.
We ended up stopping at our friend’s house for a quick hello which turned into spending the majority of the day with them. It was very nice to relax, let the kids play, talk for a while and soak up the air conditioning instead of spending the time out in the hot and humid air.
Our friends were heading to a party and we decided to get the kids home and off to bed at a decent hour as Jack is terrified of the sound that fireworks make and to alleviate the crying and late bedtime, if he would just go to sleep, we wouldn’t have the hysteria when the fireworks started. Our plan didn’t work out, but at least we tried. 😉
Jack and Max enjoyed a few sparklers before bed, and that was the extent of our day. Not very exciting, but that was the best part. Just a day to enjoy and take it easy. Exactly what the doctor ordered!
