Happy 4th of July!!

We had a good 4th of July.  There were fireworks near our house on the night of the 3rd so we planned to go and keep Bennett up late to watch them.  Sadly as soon as we left our house to head over the heavens opened up and it rained like crazy for the rest of the night.  I was so bummed it didn't work out and that we had to leave.  Bennett was really excited about seeing fireworks and his cousins.  My sister ended up going back and it turns out they still set the fireworks off during the thunderstorm but oh well hopefully next year we will have better luck.

Waiting in the car to see if the rain would stop

Since Tuesday night was a bust we got up yesterday and decided to spend the day at the pool.  Bennett loves going to the pool so we knew he would have a great time if we spent the day up there.  Not even 10 minutes into us being at the pool poor Bennett got stung by a bee on his neck!  He has never been stung so I was a bit worried if he would have a bad reaction to it and luckily he didn't and he didn't even cry when he got stung.  He barely even flinched.  Jeremy and I are freaking out trying to get the bee off of him and pull out the stinger and Bennett just sat there.  Tough little guy!

Poor baby's first sting :(

Since the sting didn't bother Bennett we hung out and played at the pool for most of the day.  We were all worn out by the time we left!  After the pool we cooked out and just hung out at home for the rest of the night.  Jeremy and I were able to see some fireworks being set off by our neighborhood but they weren't really big enough to see everything so it wasn't worth keeping Bennett up for.  Hopefully next year we will be able to see a big fireworks show with both boys!!

Happy 4th from my little guy!
