4th of July. It's one of my favorite holidays ever. However, we weren't able to celebrate as we usually do. Baby Maxwell has been making it hard to much lately. I'm adjusting to nursing him and finding a breastfeeding routine with him. He's been binge eating 24/7 (no exaggeration), and there's not a lot else that I can do while I've got a baby stuck to me. I'll blog more about that later because it's post all by itself...
Friday was a good day. Ty had work off and we spent the morning at our rental property. Furniture got delivered. Then we spent some time out by the pool at our house. Had some lunch and relaxed a bit. Later that day we got some dinner in the city and stopped for chocolate at Kirwin's, a favorite of ours. They make delicious chocolates. Scarlett got a chocolate covered pretzel and I got a chocolate covered Rice Krispy treat. Annnnnd of course we rode the Carousel before going home.
Saturday we woke up to rain that didn't want to end. We had plans to go to the parade in Saratoga and then have a cookout and pool party. But with a baby who was nursing non-stop and rain that had no intention of stopping, we decided to just stay home and postpone any events until Sunday. My sister came up from Massachusetts and kept me company on a rainy Saturday. That is always a treat. We made a trifle together and Then Sunday came around with beautiful weather. We cooked on the grill, visited with friends, swam in the pool and made up for missing the fireworks by letting the kids do some sparklers when it got dark. We celebrated the 4th on the 5th this year and we missed out on much anticipated fireworks, but it ended up being a great holiday just the same.
I hope you all had a great Red, White and Blue holiday!!!!
