4th of July

So we had a very fun 4th of July, which included Jack riding in the Pepperwood Parade throwing out candy, while Sammy ate the candy that people through out.  
After the parade I played in a 3 on 3 basketball tournament with my brother's Greg and Danny and brother-in-law Cory.  We thought we were going to get crushed considering we were the oldest team by at least 10 years, but we actually played very well and ended up losing in the semi-finals.  All thanks to the family who stayed with us and cheered us on.
Later we went down to the Snarr pool and swam.  Jack finally is willing to swim by himself, with his lifejacket on of course, but at least he is no longer holding on to the side. Sammy sure loves the pool though, he does not want anyone to hold him, he just wants to layback and float by himself.  He has now gotten to the point where you can swim underwater. All you have to do is put goggles on him and then have someone push him under the water head first and then let go and he will kick and swim his way to Erin.  He is so cute, he will smile the whole time and absolutely loves it, he loves it so much that he starts to cry when you get him out.  Dang cute!
Finally we went back to my parents for dinner and a little fireworks, which turned out to be a ton of fireworks thanks to my Dad and Costco.
All in all it was a great 4th of July.

It's so wierd how different 2 kids can be...brothers no less. I love Sam just chillin in the water by himself all laid back. He is getting so big.
K so I would have paid good $$ to see 4 "old men" play in the 3 on 3. I know a 5th player you should have had on your team. Then you for sure would have won in the finals!!! Or gotten in a fight...either one would have been fun to watch;0)
