Fun for the 4th

Another July 4th weekend came and went :( This year was awesome. Lots of fun! Friday (after we both got out of work early) went to Chris' for his annual Red, White and Boom party (thats the Columbus fireworks show - best in the midwest :)

Saturday was a super nice day. We got jack a new swing! we mounted it under the new top deck. Hopefully by the end of the summer, we will have that section mulched with a little stone patio to stand on when pushing him and a little shed...perfect shaded place for it.

Sunday mark, andrea, gina and chris came over for some grilling, daiquiris, and beers. was actually pretty hot out! but still good times.
The boys all showed up in orange - weird.
Gina - the pet whisperer
Monday was the Gahanna parade. Jacks daycare/school was walking in it so we joined. Grandma even came to walk - she made jack a sign for his stroller. Even though it sprinkled, the show went on.

He was so awake during the pre-parade and crashed during it - lol!
Danny rode his bike to the parade route - he found us :)

crawling and clapping

This week Jack has really become a "kid"! Monday he starting crawling forward out of the blue and he hasnt looked back. He is all over the place! plus now he can get to the tables and chairs and just pulls himself up like its nothing. Needless to say we had to make a babies r us run for baby proofing stuff. Also he figured out how to clap with his hands open (rather than clapping 2 toys together). Hes growing so fast!
