Happy (belated) Independence Day everyone!
Can we talk about how amazing the weather was this year in Virginia? It felt more like early September than July. I, for one, embraced the nice change in weather and a break from all of the steaming hot July 4ths in previous years. We spent the day with family in Powhatan, which always has a great, American, country kinda feel to it. Caleb really enjoyed playing/riding on his Pop-Pop’s tractor; or, as he calls it, “trak-tu.” Paul drove him around their land, and Caleb was laughing and smiling the whole time. Every once in a while he yelled, “Momma!” I guess just to make sure I was still watching him.
For lunch/dinner we had the whole Myers family over to Nanny and Pop-Pop’s. Paul grilled some yummy burgers and nanny made delicious side dishes. Caleb really enjoyed the food. He ate an entire turkey burger and a big helping of beans. After our meal, the guys (well mostly the kids) played ball.
We went to Goochland to see their firework show. I wasn’t worried a bit about Caleb being scared of the fireworks. Loud noises usually make Caleb curious, not so much scared. Just like last year, the fireworks were great and Caleb loved them. He kept saying, “wow” and “it cool.” He even took a little 30 second nap during the firework show.
I let Caleb help me decorate the traditional American Flag cake. He enjoyed helping, but I had to let him play because he was eating all the decorations!
My little quarterback. But seriously, this dude can throw!
Daddy had a much bigger flag.
Waiting for the fireworks in our oh so patriotic chairs!
