July 4th Weekend = Lots of Fun!

We had a very exciting July 4th Weekend! Our weekend included a local carnival, camping, swimming, waterfalls, tubing, cooking over the fire, family and lots of fun!!

Friday night we headed out to our local carnival and had way more fun than we expected! Daniel chose to go into the funhouse and ride the swings and then play a bunch of games! He won EVERY game he played, except one. We even came home with a goldfish!! Third ping-pong ball he threw went right into a fishbowl! Of course, before we left we bought an icee (Daniel chose lime!) and a caramel apple for Troy and I to split, but which Daniel somehow ended up with most of!

Saturday, Sunday and Monday, my mom got a campsite at a local campground and set up camp! We visited each day and took advantage of the amenities, which included a pool, a pond (in which I TOTALLY outfished the men and children!), a river with a waterfall, an arcade and of course cooking over the fire! We didn't spend the night (too hot) but we had a blast river tubing, and doing all the fun things you do at a campground.

Between summer day camp, the weekend and swim lesson, Daniel is one busy boy! Hope everyone had a great 4th of July!

P.S. - While Daniel was on the swings, it was the sweetest thing - he swung around and yelled "I love you Mom and Dad!" Still melts our hearts!!

Whew...what a fun weekend! I'm exhausted just reading about it. ;-) You're right, looks like our boys are alike in the water!

Sorry that I'm so behind. The carnival looked like tons of fun!

I'm jealous of your outing with Becky! Maybe I will be able to come to the next one. Looks like you had a fabulous time.

Happy belated 5th Birthday, Daniel!

My name is Jenna and I came across your blog. Daniel is a very special, precious, smilen and happy boy. He is so lucky to have loving, caring and wonderful parents like the both of you. I was born with a rare life threatening disease, and I love it when people sign my guestbook. Looks like Daniel is having a fun summer!
