Independence Day

We had a great 4th of July weekend. It was relaxing and fun. Dave, Carter, and I enjoyed spending time together. We started it off by visiting Grayson and bringing him some flowers and festive decorations. Carter always gets really somber and quiet when we are visiting Grayson. I still believe that they are connected somehow. Maybe it's just in my head but I find it comforting.

For the 4th, Crissy invited us to a party on Lake Forest lake. What a blast! We ate tons of food (including Crissy's very yummy chocolate cupcakes and cinnamon cake--yes, I ate both!) Sam was our captain and took us on a boat ride around the lake. I have to admit, I had a lot of hesitation about even taking Carter to the party as he has been so cranky lately... but he always amazes me. He was an angel. He loved all the attention he got and he met a new friend Alex that he just adored. We even kept him up past his bedtime to go on the boat to watch the fireworks. He snuggled up with me under a blanket and happily watched the fireworks. I covered his ears but he really didn't seem to mind the noise too much. It was such a wonderful experience!
