Excellent Independence day weekend, we needed the time to relax and we slept in all weekend. I know I needed it and so did Jeremy. We woke up Saturday to some much needed rain, but it cleared off by about 1pm just in time for some 4th of July fun and celebration. I had ordered some spinach and artichoke dip from Charleston's and I totally underestimated how much it would feed, there was a bunch but we put a fairly good size dent in the container and I told my sister that I wasn't taking any of it home with me. We then moved on to the main course but we were all stuffed. We then played a game of water volleyball no one kept score but I'm pretty sure my team won. I know I pigged out, I went off my diet for this day there is something about cooking out and the 4th of July. We decided on another game of water volleyball and I'm pretty sure my team won again. Then we had a firework display and arrived home around 11pm which was totally late for us and especially Jeremy. When the alarm clock went off on Sunday morning Jeremy started crying, he rolled over and went back to sleep so I let him sleep until noon. Jeremy actually liked the pool this year, he kept throwing his ball, so there are pictures of him waiting for the ball to come close enough for him to get it. The little turkey doesn't want to wear his life jacket, he's so cautious that he will try to get in the pool but when he realizes he can't touch boy he is back out of there that is the upper body strength he has. My sister said I should put him in swimming lessons and I think next summer I will check into that.

We raised $127,518. K95.5 staff did a GREAT job, the family stories were totally AWESOME. It would have not been possibly without the people who donated the money to help the children at St. Francis Children's Hospital and our new NICU who will be moving over early fall of 09.
