Fourth of July

We had a pretty nice July 4th weekend.  Friday was business as usual.  Saturday my sister and brother-in-law came over and we watched the UFC fight between Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin.  Brock Lesnar won.  Booooooo! On Sunday we drove to my sister's house  had lunch and went to the beach. 

Poor Aaron was so tired.  We planned on timing the drive so that he could take a nap on the way to Aunt Melissa's house.  It was working great until Ethan woke up hungry.  He was getting more and more fussy so we decided to pull over and feed him.  Aaron woke up and couldn't get back to sleep.  After lunch, Aaron fell asleep on Mark's lap but then it was time to head to the beach.  We tried to not wake Aaron but that didn't happen.  So he was very cranky the whole way there.  I mentioned to my husband that I didn't think the beach was going to be much fun.  He agreed but we went anyway.  I didn't want to be a spoil sport and end the day for everyone.
Once we got there it wasn't too bad.  At this particular beach we were able to drive on the beach which is great when lugging stuff for two kids.  Aaron played in the sand and spent a little time in the water.  Aaron decided to throw sand at me and Aunt Melissa.  Not good!  Uncle Scott tried body boarding and skim boarding.  I spent most of the time on the blanket with Ethan.  Mark and Aaron dug in the sand and played in the waves.  Aaron laid down for a little but didn't fall asleep until the ride home.

It was a long but fun day.
