A Busy, Fun Fourth of July!

Like always, we went over to the grandparents (my parents) house for the 4th!

It was such a nice day. We sat out on the front porch and played with cars for a while.

Pa Pa smoked some bologna, hot links, bratwurst, and polish sausage and grilled some chicken, while grammy made baked beans, potato salad and corn on the cob. Jake loved the baked beans and bologna, but his favorite was the corn on the cob!

Then we went out back to play and what would the 4th be without a sparkler and a rock?!

We went to the fireworks stand and bought a bunch of fireworks! (Momma was bad and didn't get a picture of them).

When we got back to Grammy's we went for a swim! Swimming is one of Jacob's favorite things to do!

Once we got out of the pool Grammy had watermelon all cut up and ready to eat. So we sat outside and snacked on it. It was so sweet and juicy!

Once it got dark enough to start fireworks it started to rain. So we stood out in the rain lighting fireworks!  Needless to say our little booger was tired when he got home.

Here are some more pictures of the day!
