"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

Happy 4th of July!

Carson's first 4th of July! We started out our day by visiting Great Grandma in the hospital. She was very glad we came to visit her. Then we went swimming in my grandparents community pool. Carson loved his new floatie that Daddy bought him.

We made homemade ice cream, one of Great Grandpa's favorite things to make on the 4th of July and later took some to Great Grandma. After visiting with Uncle Bud and Aunt Cathy, and Uncle Scott, Aunt Kim, and the girls, we headed to Tavares to watch the fireworks show!

Carson's first reaction is best described in this photo! :) He never cried, just looked a bit freaked out at first. I was nervous that the sound would bother him, and was expecting a hysterical child that I would have to run back to the car, but he never got upset!

Some of Matt's family joined us for the show too! We had such a good time listening to the patriotic music play to an awesome firework display.

By the middle of the show, and all the way til' the end, Papa had Carson clapping (his new favorite thing to do!) after EVERY firework! It was so cute! Carson did a great job staying up until 10:00 pm and fell fast asleep when he got in the car to go home. Happy first 4th of July Carson! We hope you had as much fun as we all did with you!
