4th of July 2010
Well, since we had just gotten back from D.C. the previous week, we did not go anywhere 4th of July weekend. We kept it simple w/ swimming, house & yard clean up and some at home fireworks. So, I guess a few pictures are in order. I didn't take many though as we seriously were just vegging out and having fun. But still, a few from the weekend so you can see what we were up to. Hope you enjoy.
Alex enjoying some fun in the sun on a hot weekend. All our kids are fish in the water. Stark contrast from when they first come home.
Bojan, showing his handstand skills. Many ask if missing a leg throws off his balance in the pool....umm...no. He does however always swim crooked.
Just having fun w/ dad in the pool.
Nik, getting ready for launch. When Alex first got home, we could not throw him like this due to his PTSD. After a month of being home, this is all he wanted to do over and over again. Once the kids get over 50 lbs., it's harder for Warren to throw them a great distance. Nik and Alyona are almost at the point of being too heavy. That's when they all get to do swim races w/ mom. LOL. I beat Alex the other day...barely, and he had a fit. He is a horrible sport. He hates to lose and is highly competitive. That's both good and bad. We're working on it.
Careful of the blinding light? LOL. Can you tell Warren tends to wear a shirt outside. This is the release part of it that the kids love. Being thrown clear across the pool. You can see Nik swimming back for more.
They definitely enjoyed the day of family swim time. Also, just cooked out and had some fresh corn on the cob. Then, it was time for the fireworks. That is for another post as I need to get some more stuff done around here. Enjoy your weekend everyone. We'll be going to a carnival tomorrow, having Alex's party tomorrow night, and trying to finish the upstairs bathroom on Sunday. Not a quiet weekend by any means. But, hopefully a fun one.
