Fun, fun, and more fun!

July 4th

Finger painting!

When you get covered in that much paint, the best thing to do is....

head for the sprinkler!
Not much later, it rained, leaving a nice puddle for stomping and tricycle riding.

Later, we headed out to my parents' place for hot dogs and fireworks.

A few weeks ago my parents hosted a couple dozen tadpoles in an aquarium at their house for Dale to watch. They released them when they began to turn into frogs. Yesterday Dale got to hold one of the many baby frogs hopping around!

Alan got to hold one of the super-long sparklers. We all had to be careful though.... he liked to swing it!
After sparklers we started getting setup for a few fireworks. Dale was ready!

July 5th
Back out to my parents' land....

Does this look good or what!?
When we got home the boys had a much-needed bath. I put Alan to bed, but Dale got to stay up for just a little while longer to wait for dark to light one or two more little fireworks in the driveway. I think everybody is going to sleep good tonight! :)
