After the race, we took a short break at home for some food and a shower and we were right back at Wakanda Park for some of the Freedom Fest activities. Next year the boys will be able to do a lot more of the activities!
Next year Aiden will be able to sit and climb all by himself!
Before the race, Daddy thought they needed their sunglasses. This picture reminds me of "The Blues Brothers"...
After the Wakanda festivities, we made a stop by the family cottage to visit my dad's side of the family. They have a nice spot out on Tainter Lake and it was fun to see everyone meet the boys! Sorry - I don't know why I didn't bring my camera with! After the cottage, we went to a friend's house for some yummy food, chatting with some great friends, and maybe staying awake for their firework show! No kidding, next year there will be anywhere from 20-30 kids running around!!!! Needless to say, we could not stay awake for the fireworks... It had been a busy day and the boys were t.i.r.e.d! Plus, it worked out well that we were home when the Wakanda Fireworks started to comfort Izzie. She is deathly afraid of fireworks and no matter how many fans I turned on high and how loud I turned up the TV... there was no hiding some of the BOOMS that shook the house!
Poor little girl... Wouldn't you know that all the neighbors start celebrating the holiday many days early and continue to celebrate for days after! There were some nights I couldn't get anything done without her being on me heels and tripping on her... I put her in the Baby Bjorn and strapped her right to me. Brilliant! It worked.
and... I had to include the last picture (even though it isn't the best) just to show that Aiden gets some love too! We promise.
The end of July brings the boys' 6 month check-up, a follow up on their kidneys at Children's in St. Paul, and lots of planning and preparation for our Door County trip in August!
Thanks for checking in!
The A Team, and Iz too!
