Happy 4th of July- Better Late than Never

We have been so busy and sick in the last few week, I hardly have had time to get on here and blog. Posting priority went to our vacation and that took forever. So finally I am getting around to posting about our Fourth of July.

We had planned to go to Costa Mesa to Auntie Moni's for a BBQ but decided that taking a sick toddler to a party full of non-parents wouldn't get us any invites back for next year. So we stayed in town and had a BBQ at Grammie and Pop's and celebrated my step-brother, Mikey's birthday which is actually the 5th of July.
It was fairly low key- a far cry from our Balboa days. Grammie and Pop bought 'The Boy' a fun water splash pool to play in.

He wasn't too sure what to think of it. The water was much colder that in Turks and Caicos.

He finally warmed up (get it-I'm such a dork) and had a blast.

I changed his diaper and he took off to the water. This one is for future blackmail.

After we got some clothes on 'The Boy' and ended splash time, we ate some yummy BBQ. Thanks Pop!

I mad an American flag cake for Mikey's birthday. 'The Boy' was very excited because it had "strawbee's" and "bluebee's" on it.

Happy Birthday Uncle Mikey.

Once we had our cake and Mikey opened presents, we headed out to our hill to watch fireworks. This is the second year we have gone to this particular hill in Temecula to see the show. Next year we will probably go somewhere closer but 'The Boy' still sleeps right through them. We could see the Temecula fireworks as well as the Pechanga show. It was really cool to see that many fireworks such a short distance form one another.

We hope that next year the city of Menifee will have their fireworks on the 4th instead of the weekend before.

We hope you all had a good holiday!
