Granted, Diva and Iz were confused why we were at the lake and they couldn't go near the water. We told the girls that there were some really bad germs in the water that could make them sick. They seemed satisfied with that answer. Though everyday they asked if the germs were still in the water. We distracted them with fireworks and other activities. Diva was very excited to "not be scared" anymore. This child has always been terrified of loud noises. Fireworks send her into a complete tailspin. However, for the first time in 4 years Mr. Mayer, Diva and I were able to sit on the dock and watch fireworks as Diva exclaimed "I'm not scared anymore!"
Mr. Mayer loves fireworks...we took the girls and let them buy some fireworks and sparklers. I'm not sure if the Dad's or the girls had a better time.
Here are a few pictures of our weekend...
|Donkey wasn't crazy about the water at first.|
|Those silly girls loved to run through the smoke bombs.|
|Shrek and Donkey watching their sister and Daddy play with fireworks.|
|What should we do next?|
|The girls got to throw their own smoke bombs. VERY.EXCITING.|
|They decorated Nana and Papa's driveway with sidewalk paint. Papa was glad it washed off.|
|They were having as much fun as the girls.|
