On Friday morning, I woke up with the WORST crick in my neck ever. Now, I have had the occasional crick, but this was unlike anything I have ever felt in my entire life. It was in my neck, my shoulder and down into the middle of my back. My entire left side was so stiff that I could hardly hold Liam to nurse him. As a result, I didn't do much on Friday but lounge around, but Jonathan took Will and Eric out in the boat on the lake and the boys all wake boarded. It has been over five years since Jonathan has gotten to do that, and he got up the first time! He had a blast, but was super sore all day Saturday and Sunday.
Saturday we headed over to the Bradshaws after breakfast. Jonathan and Nora hit up the pool early, Liam napped, and I lounged around on the patio with Ms. Joyce and Joan. The Bradshaws next door neighbors hosted a neighborhood July 4th cookout with food and music and fun for the kids. We went over for a little while, but it was really hot and humid, so we didn't stay too long. Instead, we all got on our swimsuits and swam in the pool. We grilled out and had a delicious spread for supper before heading home to put the kids (and ourselves) into bed before the fireworks really got started. Yep, we slept through the July 4th fireworks. What can I say, we're parents of two small children. We were pooped!
