While we cooked Aiden and Jenny played in the inflateable pool in our backyard. They splashed more water out of the pool than I've ever seen before, especially Jenny! She was trying so hard to swim and show us what she had learned at swimming lessons, that she splashed a lot of water out of the pool. Eventually I had to bring out some plastic cups of different sizes and a few strainers for them to play with so they would stop splashing so much. They had a great time, and didn't even want to get out to eat.
After we finished eating, we headed over to my cousin Vickie's house to swim in their inground pool and to watch them shoot off fireworks. It was a lot of fun, and I'm so glad we were able to at least see a few fireworks on Independence Day.
After we came home from their house, we put Aiden to bed (he was SUPER crabby) and Jenny, Jaime, and I made ice cream sundaes. They turned out really well, but Jenny needs more practice. She was a little slow with putting on the toppings so the ice cream was pretty melty by the time we ate them. They still tasted great though!
