July 4th

Bryce's first holiday! Well, Father's Day was his first actual holiday. We spent that day treating the new dad to lunch at Jimmy Mac's. Bryce slept through the whole meal which worked out great! I got David a new watch to symbolize this special "time" in our lives. The last time I got David a watch was 8 years ago, our first Christmas together! I also made David a pair of boxers with Bryce's itty bitty foot prints on them. He hated me for putting him through that. It probably sounded like I was pinching all his toes instead of simply spreading paint around on them!

Back to the 4th! The weather was awful! Worst we've had in years. Cloudy, windy, cold, and a tiny spell of small rain drops. Regardless of the weather, we went for a walk with Lilly that morning. Bryce is still adjusting to his car seat. Whenever he is awake for too long while sitting in there he cries. He was awake for the walk and I ended up having to carry him much of the way because of his persistence of crying to get out. He'll get used to it eventually... we hope! We packed up the car and headed up to Lake Tapps at Whit's to spend the day. Bryce slept the entire time we were there. As long as he was being held and cuddled he was fine and happy. The fireworks didn't even bother him or make him jump. He spent most of the day loving on Auntie Jesse and "Diva" Whit. We did head home before all the fireworks really got going. We probably would have stayed if the weather was better. I didn't want Bryce getting too cold or sitting by the fire all night with his young lungs. Next year he'll be old enough to be a trooper and hopefully next year we'll all get to enjoy better weather.

Lots of love for the little man
When I was pregnant, I often wanted a roasted marshmallow
but there were no campfires! Here is Whit roasting me that
marshmallow I wanted so badly. Why is it that when you crave
something, it often tastes so much better in your head!?
We also went to Emerald Downs to watch the horse
races with David's company. Mal and Phil joined us
but we all didn't win big on bets.
