July 4th Weekend

We had a very busy weekend! Saturday we had a cookout at my parents house. We had Kevin's family over, my family over and family friends over. My mom and dad bought the babies a little pool so they went swimming for a little bit during the day.

Sunday we had a cookout at my sister's & Tommy's house. They have a big pool in their backyard so we went swimming! We bought the babies the swimsuits with the floatation devices built in them before we went over. The babies didnt' want to swim that much in the beginning. But it was busy they were tired, not because they didn't like the water. So we fed them and put them down for a nap. After they woke up from their nap, they went swimming again. Caitlyn had a ball!! We put her in the baby float and she was splashing and laughing. Ashton still wasn't very happy, but I'm pretty sure it was because of the sun. He did not want to keep his hat on, but when he didn't have it on, the sun was in his eyes and he couldn't see. Brittany had to warm up to the water first, then she started splashing around! It's a good thing that they love the water!!!

During the cookout on Sunday, my sister's boyfriend had a little surprise for her. He gathered all of their friends that were there and had them on the deck and while my parents were in the pool, he knelt down in front of them, grabbed my sister's hand and proposed to her!!! Of course she said Yes!!!

On Monday (July 4th) we spent the day in Hatteras with Jerry, April and their kids. They were camping since last week down there and invited us over for the day. The campground has an indoor and outdoor pool. We started off in the outdoor pool, but then again, Ashton wouldn't keep his hat on so we went into the indoor pool. We swam for a little bit, then went back to the camper to feed the babies and see if they would take a nap. We hung out at the camper for a few hours. After they ate their dinner and took a little nap, we went back down to the indoor pool. We swam for about an hour or two. We dunked the babies underwater for the first time. I was expecting a cry, but instead we got giggles!! They loved to go underwater!!! By the time the fireworks started last night, they were all asleep so they didn't get to see them!!

Overall we had a fun filled weekend!! Next trip... camping at Bethpage for 9 days!!!
