I'm back! It's been a few days since I've been on the computer. I've missed reading all of your blogs.
This weekend seemed like it would never end. My sister and I went to a barbecue on Sunday and she slept over my house that night. It was fun having her here. She has never spent the night and it felt like old times.
We went down the shore on Monday and had a great day at my parents swimming in the pool. J loves the water. She is like a fish. I always manage to forget something when packing up our bags and this time it was her swim diapers. We let her go in without them and she had to promise not to pee pee in the pool. She did good, at least I think she did.
While J napped at my mom's; my sister, her fiance, my parents, and I assembled her favors for the wedding. It is coming up in 3 weeks. July 22nd is the big day and I am so excited for her. Hubby wasn't there because he had to work. I swear sometimes I feel like a single mom. That's a whole 'nother story.
Yesterday we woke up early to catch a parade and then went to a carnival. It was so damn hot I wanted to kill someone. Fourth of July should be pretty special for me because it's the day Hubby and I got engaged almost 5 years ago but it always so hot that we end up fighting. I'm not even gonna go into the name calling.
After the carnival we went to his sister's house for some more swimming. J got to play with her cousins, which she always loves. We hung out there all day and then went to the fireworks.
This is the first year we took J. It never really made sense before. I knew she would be afraid plus I was never willing to keep her out past her bedtime. So we all went as a family and it was really nice. We sat on blankets and had ice cream and popcorn. When they started she was scared but eventually she warmed up and I think everyone in the park could hear her yelling, "Wow!" or "That was a big one." It was cool to experience fireworks through her eyes. I can't wait to make more memories like that.
With all that said, I feel like I missed so much in the blog world. How do you guys keep up? Did you get to read and write this weekend?
P.S. Stop over at Lollipop and check out my very first contest. It's an essay contest and you could win a really great book. The deadline is at the end of July. Oh and Mommy Off the Record, I will get to your meme by the end of this week. I promise!
