During the week, we cooled off in some hot weather by playing in the sprinkler:
And today, we celebrated Independence Day (since the 4th is on a Sunday) with a parade and a carnival! Here's Bethany with one of her favorite people, Ms. Nicole, who heads up the nursery ministry at our church:
We got LOTS of candy during the parade. Lots.
At the carnival we got to do lots of fun stuff, like ride a train:
And of course, we couldn't go to a carnival at the park without stopping at the swings on our way out:
We can't wait until next year when it's a little more fun for Samantha. The sirens woke her up at the parade, and there wasn't really much for her to do at the carnival. I wonder how they'll sleep with fireworks going on tonight...
