Independence Day

This year, for the Fourth of July, we went to Nathan's Aunt Donna and Uncle Orv's house for an afternoon potluck, evening pizza, and a great view of the fireworks over Port Orchard and Bremerton.  There were tons of family members present, and the most common thing anyone said during the day was, "He's so cute!"  (They were talking about Levi, of course!)  He behaved really well during the whole long day, and he even enjoyed the fireworks.  Well . . . maybe he didn't enjoy them, but he noticed them and wasn't scared of the loud sounds.  What more could we ask?

Yesterday, July 5th, I thought we would try playing in the "pool."  Since Levi can't sit up yet, I brought our infant bathtub outside and set it under an umbrella.  He hasn't been happy during his evening baths, so I was hoping that playing with toys in the tub outside would help him feel more comfortable.  He had a good time, but I think he enjoyed laying on the towel afterward even more.  He has always loved the wind, so apparently feeling the breeze while wearing wet swim trunks and a shirt was pretty great.  Seems awfully cold to me!
"Hey, could somebody hand me a beer?"

These photos were taken while Levi was lying down.  This blog "corrected" them while uploading, and I don't know how to rotate them.  Just turn your head to see how they are supposed to look.  :)
