First up was swimming at our friend Amber's. We had a hotdog lunch and swam in her moms pool. It was so much fun! The kids like to take cups of cold water and dump them on the adults as they swim in the pool. Gary and Rex had a genius idea for how to get them back. Have them all sit on the side of the pool for a picture and the guys would dump the rest of the cold water jug right on them!

The big kids play in the pool until we make them get out and eat. They are fish!
My baby girl just could not stay awake and enjoy the pool any longer. She took an hour nap in her stroller in the shade. This girl has the life!
Pretty soon it was time to say our goodbye's (until we all met back up at Stef's inlaws for the next picnic) but getting the kids to want to leave was hard. Even out of the water, they find ways to keep busy to avoid the dreaded "time to leave!"
Next up in our day of celebrating America's birthday was a picnic dinner and parade. You guys, it was a bajillion degrees and I am pretty sure that I melted a bit. The kids had a blast, though. So it was worth staying outside for 9 hours. (although if you asked me that at 10pm when I was so sick from being over heated for so long, I would say it was not worth it)
