Okay it's a little late in posting. We went to a co-worker/friend's house for the 4th this year. it was a great time. i took lots of photos of the fireworks, but i was too close to the action to get many that were framed in the picture well. this has got to be about the first year josie really enjoyed the fireworks. she's been quite afraid of the loud explosions in years past. She loved them this year. Taylor enjoyed running out to set alot of them off. a neighbor set off a sparkler bomb placed inside a stuffed animal. i've got it on video. it's pretty sweet - stuffing went everywhere! poor furry fella didn't stand a chance! i was at least 100 feet away and still felt the impact on my chest.
Josie is 'back to normal' - and has been for over a week. she still can't swim til this weekend. i can't believe we leave for Colorado in just 8 days!! it's still not fully planned yet! but we're all looking forward to it.
