Happy 4th of July!

For the 4th of July we went out to my parents farm to celebrate with family.  Blake smoked a couple of pork butts on his Big Green Egg and I made some homemade peach ice cream.  They both turned out great and were a huge hit! Brooks actually did much better with fireworks this year than I was expecting.  We watched the York fireworks show Sunday night, and he loved them!  He actually started laughing and clapping during it all!  He was pretty tired Monday night when we lit some out at the farm, but he still watched them without getting scared! 

Monday afternoon Blake and I went out to the farm early to have some fun playing outside.  Brooks enjoyed the splash pool Grandma had bought, but he didn't play in it long since he was pretty worn out from the already busy weekend.  We had cousin Katy's 1 year bday party Saturday night, swimming for the first time in a pool on Sunday night, and then his first fireworks show later that night.  Even though he was exhausted and in need of another nap, he enjoyed splashing for a while.  Blake had just as much fun with it as Brooks I think!

 They almost have the same expression in this picture!
Blake and the pulled pork he made....yum!!
Walking around with Great-Grandma
Playing in the sandbox was the big hit of the night for Brooks

 Uncle Bret showed him how to make sand turtles.  I think Brooks just liked to smash them!

Keeping the peace!

We had a fun weekend celebrating pretty much 3 nights in a row, but I think now we are all pretty tired!  It might take Brooks a few days to recover from the late nights! (and me too!).  Happy 4th!
