4th of July weekend

This weekend was a busy one for us and we still are not going to be slowing down. For the 4th of July we had a barbecue and invited over some people from Eric’s Squadron and our neighborhood. Ethan had a fun time playing and was even brave enough to do some sparklers. He only tried two and then was done with it. However, he sat on my lap with his hands over his ears while we watched our neighbors light their fireworks. He didn’t want anything to do with it. Then the next day our good friends from high school, the Bolin’s came for a little vacation. Due to the military moving us in different directions it has been 2 ½ years since we have last seen them. Thankfully, we are living much closer now. Both of our families have grown by two kids since then so it was nice to finally meet their little ones. Our kids got along pretty well and the boys have acted like they have always known each other. It made for some really cute moments. Ethan has seen pictures of them on their family blog but now he knows who they are. While they were here we got to take the kids to Sea World. It was a lot of fun and they enjoyed all of the animals. We had a great weekend and visiting with old friends is always really fun. We have one day of rest and then a whole new set of visitors and fun are coming!

Here is a video of Ethan Swimming. It was about 3 feet deep which means he couldn't reach the floor but was just loving it.
