We had a lazy day at home after I drug the kids along to a doctor appointment. Riley helped me make and decorate her cake. We played in the pool in the afternoon and when daddy FINALLY got home at 2:30 (long time for a seven year old) she got to open her present.
Riley also got to choose her favorite dinner for me to cook her and she chose chicken noodle soup from the can. Wow! Did I get off easy or what?

Yesterday Paul set up the pool for Jake while Riley was at a sleepover. Jake said he was going to just hang out like a mommy and he did. He spent about an hour just lazing around on his air filled doughnut.
The extreme heat is supposed to continue through tomorrow then we will return to a normal summer in the Northwest. I am not complaining. After the depressing spring and early summer we had I am going to safely enjoy the weather.

These aren't in order of how I plan to read them. I just thought they looked best stacked this way. My first book which I started today is To Kill a Mockingbird. I have never read it! I know that is very shocking. Isn't every high school student required to read this book? I think Harry Potter might be second since it is the biggest. I haven't read any of the other books but I am kind of dying to find out what happens in the end before the movie comes out. Then again will it ruin the movie for me?
The other books I have heard are good and Catcher in the Rye is another classic I have never read and my dad said he really liked it.
Let's see if I can accomplish my task shall we?

It has been a pretty lazy day here. Normally we would head to the lake property but with all the recent driving we just did I wanted to stay home and sleep in my own bed. We decided to hit the local 4th of July parade. Due to the weather we didn't have to get there too early and we got a decent spot.
The kids had fun and collected a good few handfuls each of candy.
Here is the rain coming in. For the last 10 minutes or so of the parade we did get misted on. I was really hoping to have a fire in the back yard with sparklers and smores but I think that plan is dashed!
On this day don't forget to thank the veterans who served our country. Also all of our brave service people who serve now. :)
