Happy 4th of July! We had a very quiet holiday at home, with much video-game playing by our older sons. The weather looked gray, overcast and threatened to rain all day. We had one of our good friends over for lunch/dinner, and we were so panicked by the weather that we ate our barbecue at 3 pm. It didn’t rain after all.
I didn’t take a single picture yesterday, so these are pictures from our annual church picnic that we had on Sunday morning. We had a very nice open-air service. There was no shade, but the temperature was a pleasant 78 degrees, and there was a strong breeze. The wind makes Jonny nervous, and he held on to the case for my lawn chair, terrified that it would blow away. (He hates ANYTHING to blow away, having been traumatized by balloon losses early in life).
After that, the boys played, and we ate. Ben played with his toys in the Pack ‘n’ Play, and enjoyed being played with, talked to, and held. The food was good, and we talked to friends. A lot of people (especially kids) had questions about Ben and CdLS, and we got to answer them. I guess it’s OK for people to ask questions, but every now and then I wish we could have a family outing without having to answer so many questions…maybe I just need to grow a thicker skin.
The boys went to bed on time, and slept well. In all, we had a very nice time, I was glad we went, and I’m looking forward to next year.
