Today my friends Kyle and Heather invited us to their beach club to swim and watch the fireworks! We were so exited to go! We hardly ever go to a beach! When we got there, it was cookout time!
Kyle made some yummy burgers, brats, and hotdogs.
The kids had some fun playing baseball with our friends Sean and Mia, and their dad Kevin. They sure like Kevin!
Jackson came to sit by Evie who was trying to hide her fruit snacks because she knew Jackson would be sneaky and try to take them.
The kid could not wait to get in the water. Evie had so much fun swimming and even swam by herself a little bit.
Gracie was all about swimming by herself. She loved it!
This guy mostly hung out by the shore. He came in the water with me but liked digging in the sand better.
The kids all had fun playing in the sand too. We bought a bunch of shovels and buckets.
In fact all the little kids had fun playing together in the sand.
This was the only little one that preferred to be in the water.
Gavin came over to check out what Jackson and Presley were up to.
They played so well.
Gracie had to be reminded to stay near an adult because with her floaty on, there was no stopping her. She was a fish!
And she had fun swimming with Sean.
We came back for snacks and Jackson loved his cookie. Can you tell?
We played at the park for a little bit before the fireworks started.
These things make me so nervous.
Yep, I brought my kids jammies to change into after swimming and this guys were a litte tight. Oh well, he still looks cute.
I don't think Evie and Presley have seen fireworks before and I wondered how they would do.
They did so good! Evie sat on Erin's lap and laughed at them. Presley sat in a little chair and talked throughout the whole thing mainly naming the colors that they were. Most of the time he was right! He also decided and said that he was a "brave boy" because some of the kids were scared and crying. Gracie likes them too but she just covers her ears because she doesn't like how loud they are.
A pefect afternoon. The only thing missing was Chuck. Maybe next time. Thanks Kyle and Heather for inviting us! We had a blast! Can't wait for next year!
And now I have some wrapping to do since I have a little girl turning 5 tomorrow!
