Today we had some good old fashion family time. R was up at 5 so instead of starting the day I put her back in bed and moved to the couch and slept in until 8! Lee cooked an awesome breakfast. R went down for a nap. E and I hit up the pool. Came home. Lee whipped up some homemade ice cream and grilled out. I worked on R's stocking. E did puzzles. R got tickled. Bath and then bed.
I am highly disappointed that we did not make it to the parade we went to last year. The heat has been nasty and E would have survived it but R would have been miserable. We dvr'ed the Boston fireworks to watch with E though she has no concept of the fourth of July. Open to suggestions for good fourth activities for kids that do not hinge on the temp or weather.
