The Fourth

We decided last minute to spend the 4th with Andy's family.
We couldn't decide if we should go because of a few things but my main concern was that Ben was due for one of his clusters (they come weekly now) and it's just easier to deal with the seizures at home.
But, I finally just decided that we could be spontaneous and I'm so glad we went.

It wouldn't be a weekend at Grandma's house without the 4 wheeler train.

Andy rode a bike along side...

I'm not sure what Ben and Austin are communicating here :)

The boys also rode along side...

It also wouldn't be a weekend at Grandma's without playing in the waterfall...

Thanks again for these great pictures Jenny!

We also need to have a production put on by the kids each time...

After the play we were debating whether or not we should go try and catch the fireworks.  It was almost time for them to start and we knew the traffic would be bad so most of us opted out.  I'm glad our family didn't end up going because Ben started his cluster shortly thereafter.

Ben found Grandma's collection of rubber ducks the next morning and had to line them all up... order by type.
Got all his ducks in a row :)

Then Grandpa and the kids went to the stream to have a rubber duck race...

They didn't move quite as fast as we were expecting.

Here's Dad downstream with the butterfly net ready to snatch those swift duckies out of the water.
Mostly they just got caught in the rocks and weeds and things but it was a fun experiment anyway :)

A fast but pleasant holiday weekend!


  1. Looks like a really fun time! I love the "ducks in a row". : )

  2. It looks like you guys are having such a fun summer!
