Independence Day

This boy, he’s fearless! Last weekend, we spent the Fourth of July BBQing and swimming at friends Mark and Tonya’s place.

Tau’d had water wings for only a week or two but that didn’t stop him from taking off down the slide — at least 20 or 30 times — and wanting to do it all on his own. “Mommy! You go ‘way! You don’t catch me!”

We dragged him out the pool several times, little body shivering, teeth chattering, and mucho complaining.  “I NEED to go downa slide ‘gain!”

When it was time for fireworks (the first he’d ever seen) he was a bit more wary. It didn’t stop him though from wanting to hold his own sparkler, like all the bigger kids!
