4th of July Fun

Happy 4th of July!

We had a great one with lots of fun activities. During the day, we took Morgan swimming at the Fitness Club. We bought her swimming goggles for her swim lessons and she loves those things. She was dunking herself all the way under the water with those things on. She's come such a long way from the girl who would scream because her ears would get wet in a bath.

After swimming, we went over to the Moore's house for some BBQ festivities. Hannah and Caleb were playing baseball and Morgan was watching intensely. She plays T-ball at home, but hasn't tried to swing at a moving target before. She decided she wanted to try - and without any help. Now Morgan isn't the most athletic. She's very good at gymnastics, but isn't the best runner or most agile one out there. It's taken her several months to get good at riding a biking, so I was thinking this wasn't going to go well. She fooled me! She made contact with that ball during each of her turns. Towards the end, she was hitting the ball four times in a row. I was very impressed.
When it got dark, we headed down to the Town Hall for the firework show. Morgan does not like loud noises so we prepared her. Once the show started, she had her hands over her ears. I thought she might be scared, but then she started talking about how the multi-colored ones were her favorite. The show was quite impressive and lasted about 25 minutes.

Morgan was asleep before we even left the parking lot.

Eddie, Morgan and Caleb

We are SO going to have to keep an eye on these two when they get older!!
