Fourth of July

 This year, we spent most of the day recovering (our whole family) from the stomach flu.  We all got wiped out and it was rough.  It had been a few days wince any of us had been sick but we still didn't feel the greatest.  We had such good intentions.  We had planned to go down to Coronado and spend the day there with Dane and Janelle and the kids.  They got wiped out, too.  So the best we could do was pack a picnic and headed to the Temecula sports park. 

We set up a little spot and chatted and watched the kids play.  It is so hard to watch after 'The Littles' when you just don't feel good.  Someday, they will be older and appreciate how we sucked it up so they could have a memorable holiday.

All pics are with the phone camera.  Sick mommies don't remember to charge the battery in their nice cameras.

 'Munchkin' loves Capri Suns.  She kept picking up the leftovers the older kids left on the ground.  It was actually pretty comical.  I still can't get over how well she can already drink from a straw.

'The Boy' was completely entertained by this beach ball for hours. 

At 9, the best fireworks show started.  It was so long and we had a front row seat.  We loved it.  Next year, we plan on coming back here to celebrate.  We'll see how that one goes.
