And about that time Benjamin started crying and was over it. :) We took turns standing with him in the shade until it was over.
After lunch Michael and Benjamin napped and Iz and Me went swimming.
Then it was time to start getting dinner ready. We grilled burgers and made guacamole and black bean and corn salsa, and had brownies and ice cream and watermelon for dessert.

It was a fun day with lots of my favorite things: family, friends, swimming, good food, and great weather. In light of many recent events, I was so grateful to tuck my little ones into bed that night. We are so blessed and have so much to be thankful for.
