Summer Goodness

This summer is turning out to be a great one. There's a good mix of all different kinds of events including: play dates, real dates, trips to the movie theater, picnics, bachelorette parties, weddings (!), marathon TV watching sessions, reading for hours, swimming too many times to count, family dinners and random gatherings. Plus, my sister Megan will be home next month, and she'll be able to enjoy all these things with us! Yay!

Yesterday, my mom, Bill, Liam and I went to the fireworks five minutes from our house, and it made me think about how lucky I am to have the family I have. I feel super blessed. My mom brought an assortment of snacks including hummus, pretzels, flavored tootsie rolls and other candy, lemonade and cookies. I had more of the same, and it made for a great party. Liam loved watching all the kids, and he kept running away from us to go watch the older kids play kickball.

It was fun to watch him excitedly waddle off and stare at the other kids. He wanted so badly to join in the fun. Unfortunately, his cousins were sitting pretty far away from us. :(

Once the fireworks started, Liam kept his orange headphones on for a little bit. I held him for a little bit. Then Bill held him, and then he walked over to my mom and she held him too. I think he liked the fireworks for a few minutes, but he became stir crazy towards the end.

We packed up our things after the finale, and I was walking with Liam. Sometimes, I like to whisper stupid fun things to him. This time, I said, "You're just a baby." Normally, he doesn't really react to what I say. He's busy looking off at his surroundings, but this time, he laughed right after I told him he was a baby. I can't tell you how fun it is to have him laugh at something silly I said. He's growing up.

This summer is bound to be the best we've experienced in a while. ;) How's your summer going?
