Happy 4th of July 3013

Yet another reason I love blogger...this is my current view while blogging.
The kids are with Jason, fishing on the boat at Lenore's lake (my maternal grandmother)
 It's Cole's first time on the boat. We are spending the long weekend fishing, boating and swimming at Lake Winnebago. And Jason shot a wedding in Appleton on Saturday!

Cole's first boat ride

 Below is Cecelia all decked out in her glow lights to go see Oshkosh's fireworks from to boat. Rough life for the 4 year old!
 Below are pics of the kids at the parade on the 4th. Good old Oak Creek does it up nicely tossing candy at every turn. Cole was getting good at it by the second half of the parade.

below is a sideways video (still getting used to my new phone, sorry!)

On the 3rd, G-ma took Cole and we took Cecelia to Betty Brinn Children's Museum. They had a family package for members for firework viewing. Starting at 6:30 they opened the whole museum, fed us dinner, and had special activities and treats to occupy the time until our front row seats for the big US Bank fireworks show downtown. We were able to sit on their balcony which faces the Milwaukee Art Museum which is right where the big barges shoot off the fireworks. It would have been amazing but after about 5 minutes of fireworks, the fog rolled in. We could only see the tops of them and then they were gone. I was bummed. Cecelia didn't know any better though. And she survived fireworks on the 4th with Jason in Oak Creek and then on the 5th (as seen above) from the boat. She is just fine!! We will do the the Betty Brinn thing again though. It was great!
Cecelia's first time at karaoke!
We hope you had a great 4th as well. God bless America!!!
