Topher woke up sick the morning of July 4th. He has a knack for getting sick on that holiday. This happened the same weekend last year. Poor baby. Luckily it was just a quick bug and by evening, he was pretty much back to normal. Since we didn't want to keep him up late, though, we substituted fireworks with an afternoon of water balloons. They both explode, they both make people smile and squeal. They are both extremely dangerous in careless hands.
It was a lot of fun. And since this has occured two years in a row, I think we have found our family's official 4th of July tradition--getting sick and then getting wet.
Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July! May God bless all our soldiers who have served and continue to serve in order to keep us free.
