4th of July part 3

After the boys woke up from their nap we headed over to Niblick Baptist Church because they were having a huge "Old Fashioned 4th of July Party" with a million fun things to do and eat that were all free. They had sack races, three legged races, watermelon, hotdog, and nacho eating contests. Balloon animals, a band, a ton of different bounce houses including one huge one that was an obstacle course, and another that was a water slide. We had So Much Fun!

the waterslide Marshall went on. It was a lot bigger than it looks in this pic!

I talked/forced Jerad into entering the watermelon eating contest. He's third from the left:

He didn't win, the guy on the far right did. But we did win a free entree at a local Mexican restaurant!

no idea what Jerad is doing in this picture

After watching Daddy, Marshall wanted to try too:

After a bunch of bounce-housing (which I somehow didn't get a picture of), we left and headed to Jerad's parent's house. We hung out with them, his brother Joey and his girlfriend, had dinner, then went outside to watch the neighborhood's fireworks:

Uncle Joey had a bunch of sparklers for Marshall:


You can't tell from the pictures, but he was in heaven and kept asking for "another one? one more time?" after each sparkler would go out.

We finally got home around 11pm. Phew, what a day!

I'm off the rest of the week (yeay!) which is a good thing because the boys are tiiiired and ready to chilax at home and catch up on some rest after such a fun filled week. They both slept in, and are taking extra naps. Hence the reason I've been able to post 3 blogs in one day:)

I tried to take them to the park this afternoon and Marshall had a meltdown and begged to "stay home and play on the floor." Works for me!
