Firecracker, Firecracker, BOOM, BOOM, BOOM!

Happy fourth of July!  While I can hear the ka-booms and crackles of fireworks just outside my window, we opted out of watching the annual display.  George and I didn’t think it wise to keep four babies up WAY past bedtime AND expose them to startling noises.   Unexpected loud noises tend to send them into a tailspin right now.  Despite all the commotion outdoors, the babies are all snuggled up their cribs fast asleep. We may not be enjoying the annual light show, but we had a spectacular day with friends and family at the pool. Thank you, Billie and Bob for hosting and to everyone who helped make the babies day at the pool a blast.

Everyone was slathered in Water Babies and sidled with an adult.

When little eyes became heavy, helpers came to the rescue to dry soppy babies off and dress them in dry pajamas.

How did you celebrate Independence Day?

hugs!
