Happy 4th of July!!!

I can't believe that the 4th of July has come and gone already! We had such a fun long weekend. Lauren and Ellie had a sleepover at our house on Thursday night - we went to the park and ate dairy queen ice cream in the car... which was interesting with Gavin, but Lauren was such a good helper, he hardly made a mess! We spent a lot of time outside that night which tired them all out! Friday morning we went to the parade in Spicer, which got a little long and a little too hot for everyone - but it didn't take G very long to figure out that what they are throwing is candy - and boy does it taste good! We had so much fun evne though we were sitting right in the sun! We also got Gavin a very cool priate pool, so after lunch at applebees the kids all cooled off in that - G love its - he's gone swimming a lot since then!!! We didn't make it to the fireworks again this year - too much excitement during the day, Gavin just couldn't stay awake.
He has been so much fun lately, he's figured out how to be silly and goofy - which is so fun for Bryan and I to watch. Although, he's also learned he can be naughty too. Yesterday, I was trying to have a conversation with him on what happens when we are naughty - and he has been in time out before, so he knows what corner that is. Well, after his bath, he wanted to brush his teeth, but ended up dumping a cup full of water all over the counter top - so I nicely told him -
"no Gavin, that is naughty" he smiled at me, said "oh oh - I naughty" and ran naked to the time out corner........ and peed. so much for that - it was like he was saying - I'll show you naughty!!!
that's just a little glimpse into my everyday....
Anyway, I hope everyone had a fun and safe 4th of July weekend. Before I know we're going to be celebrating G's 2nd birthday!

Hi, Gavin,
Looks like you are having a super fun summer. We miss you so much! Can't wait to see you at the more peeing in the corner (Although, I have to say, that is hilarious!)
Love you sweetie!
