July 4th Weekend

We had a fun 4th of July! We woke up early on Thursday and drove to Little Rock to spend the weekend with my parents. They have a pool and it makes for a fun summer. Although the pool makes me a nervous wreck, not going to lie. I pretty much feel on edge the whole time I'm there. BUT, the boys love it and it's so much easier to go swimming at their place vs our neighborhood pool. Plus while the boys nap or stay inside I can lounge in the pool by myself and it's so relaxing and nice.
One nice thing about my parents pool is that it's heated. Even in July we crank the heat up a tiny bit so the pool is never cold. This is perfect for baby Wells because we learned last time we were there that he LOVES to go swimming!! So I made sure to pack his tiny little swimsuits this time so he could take a dip in the pool. He kicks his little legs and splashes his arms and enjoys himself soooo much! I could hardly stand how cute he looked in his little swim outfit on the 4th and he enjoyed a solid 30 minute swim in between his naptime so he considered his first 4th to be a good one!
Scott and my Dad bought some fireworks to shoot off and the boys had so much fun with it, especially Campbell. Bennett watched with his ears covered. We had fun doing that before the big fireworks show that we were able to see from my parents house! We let the boys stay up until 10:00 and boy did we pay for it the next day with the grouchiest set of brothers ever. My kids can completely handle staying up late at night but they are absolute bears the next day. Never, ever worth it.
Overall, such a fun weekend! I love the 4th of July and celebrating our country! This was the first 4th that we've spent with my family in a really long time and while we were doing fireworks I had a moment where I realized how much fun I was having and how glad I was to be there spending it with them.
We did a lot of swimming the rest of the weekend but the highlight of our weekend had to be taking our dino obsessed boy to a dinosaur exhibit one day. I'll have to share more on that later. It deserves it's own blog post for my blogging memories.
