Something to blog about

Life has been pretty slow around here- a lot of staying indoors to avoid the heat and working on potty training for my big boy Etienne. I know it is kind of early for potty training- he just turned two, but I really don't want to wait a year and summer time is by far the best time to do it. Thankfully he has been doing great so far. I have discovered he will do just about anything for chocolate.
Anyways- we did manage to get out of the house and into the pool last week. My kids are generally afraid of water. Seb hates his bath and Etienne screams if water gets anywhere near his eyes. James isn't bold near water either, but by the end of the day, Steve had him dunking under and even opening his eyes. Seb loved floating in his floaty thing and Etienne was the only one who stayed pool side most of the afternoon. For me, it just felt good to float for awhile.

No time for subtitles

Well, if I don't put some pictures of my trip up now, I never will. I don't have the time to describe all the events highlighted, so have fun guessing what we did!

Back in time for fireworks

I know I haven't posted pictures of my time in Tacoma yet, but I thought I would get some of these fourth of July shots up before Moriah does. Hah! We got home at 4:15 am July 4th, so we were a bit exhausted, not to mention unorganized and surrounded by piles of unpacked luggage, but we decided to go with Andy and Moriah and crew to the downtown fireworks show anyways.
We met up at their house beforehand and took some pictures of our patriotic wardrobes (pardon Steve's black t-shirt- it isn't his independence day remember. And he is half British)

The show didn't start until late, so we had an interesting time keeping track of the kids in the darkness while we waited, (including bribing them with suckers) but once the fireworks started, they had no problem staying put.

Hope you all had a fun fourth!
