fun on the 4th

Yesterday we went over to Aunt Debbie's for an impromptu 4th of July shindig. As is customary with family bonding events at the Bills' B&B, a great time was had by all. Alex, who just started swimming lessons this past week, was eager to show off his new water skills...blowing bubbles, getting dunked without crying, and getting out of the pool almost all by himself! And then back in, and out, and in, and out, and in, and... You get the picture.

We sure missed Daddy (this pic is for you Ben!) who's busy working. I doubt they had fireworks in Africa but if it's any consolation, we didn't end up seeing any either.

(his shirt reads "Dad's Little Firecracker")

Oh, and if there was ever any doubt as to whether this kid actually carries any of my genes this should wipe it out. Here's Alex "eating" a tomato (Gramma P was so proud)...

And here he is tossing it to the ground. That's m'boy!

Thanks again Aunt Debbie and Uncle Lloyd for a fabulous 4th!

No comment about our little "macho man" and the baby buggy? He spent a large amount of time pushing a toddler sized baby buggy with a stuffed baby panda bear in it around the pool. He was so serious about it!

I'm very glad to see that Alex is following your footstep on the tomoato hatred. At least now, there are 3 of us :)

Happy 4th of July!
