We celebrated the 4th of July at our usual spot, Tulare Beach, at Great-grandparents house. The weather was so warm this year, we actually went swimming. We stayed the weekend and Auntie Sidney stayed too. She even camped out in the tent with Jacob and Evie on the 3rd. When we asked her how it went, she said "there were a lot of fireworks!" Needless to say she didn't get much sleep.
Ready for the fireworks. For the week leading up to the 4th, Jacob said he was going to sit with Auntie Sidney. Previous years the kids cowered inside during the fireworks crying and cringing at every bang. This year we tried noise canceling headphones, which worked well and all the kids watched fireworks outside with us.
We have had fun getting into geocaching recently. We have been "treasure hunting" five times and are 5 for 5 in finding the treasure. The kids enjoy it, especially Jacob, but are often disappointed when the treasure doesn't contain toys. Here are a few of our outings.
