4th of July and more stay at home fun.

I hope everyone had a great July 4th weekend.  Ours really was pretty low key.  They did have a carnival on the base with rides and face painting and bouncy castles and all of that stuff and of course fireworks.  We had to go there of course.  Here is the smilebox scrapbook that I put together of the festival on base.

So we have been staying at home a lot since I am 37 weeks pregnant and really don't feel like doing much at all.  The first picture  is of the girls with these elephant masks on.  They belong to the elefun game and you are supposed to pick up a doughnut with the trunk but they like to just wear the masks around.

Here is little Gwyn in her highchair eating black olives.  We love black olives at our house.  All the girls love to put them on their fingers and then eat them off.
If you watched the smilebox scrapbook then you saw this picture already but if you didn't this is Mark and the girls at the 4th of July festival on the base.  Mark won this huge turtle and the girls won princess costume jewelry.  Just a small side note about the fireworks. . . Corina and Aurora were SO excited about the fireworks.  When they finally started everyone was yelling and cheering. Not Gwyneth though, she was crying.  It was so funny.  I was holding her and from there on out until the end it was like she was watching a horror show that she could't take her eyes off of.  Then FINALLY at the end she started saying yeah because she figures out that everyone was cheering and clapping and they weren't scared.

That next day Mark had a baseball game and God bless Mark he brought home Krispy Kreme doughnuts.  He brought hats home too and so here is Gwyneth wearing her hat with her doughnut.  
Gwyneth is starting to get a little mischievous so I caught her in the act of climbing on the register.
Here she is sitting on the register with a smile on her face of course.
Corina was giving horse rides.
This picture was taken at about 9 at night but here it is still light out.
Here is Gwyneth watercoloring.  Good thing they are the washable kind.  :)  She really likes to paint. Especially if the other girls are painting too.
This is recycling at one of it's best.  Corina wanted to save this oatmeal box and so here she is painting it.  Kids love to paint things that you don't usually paint.
Here is Aurora painting her Juicy Juice bottle.  She had the best time!  They both thought it was so cool to paint their things.
Here is a pic of Gwyneth and me.  We took about 15 pics because she was having a good time getting her picture taken.

I hope everyone had a good week.
