our 4th of July at Yuba Lake

I love birthdays and I love celebrating America's birthday!  We celebrated all day at the lake on the beach and in the tubes. Don't let Myer's smile fool you, he was terrified of the water.  I'm clueless as to why because he loved the beach in California.  He was only happy if he was on some kind of flotation device, in someone's arms, or far far away from the beach. So we just didn't touch the water.  Easier said than done when you're at a lake but we made do with jumping from the tubes all the way to the pavilion of food back to tubes. He even, along with his grandparents and cousins, rode on the tubes while the boat pulled them (slowly) around.  At least he stayed out of the water doing that.  What a day.

Later that night we did fireworks.  We started out on the curb, then moved to the garage, then inside to watch through the window.  I learned so much about my sensitive son that day-- fear of the lake and noisy fireworks.  He sure slept good though.  All that panic wore him out.  We are going to have to take Pioneer Day a little easier this year.  Cheers.
