Our Month of July

THE FOURTH OF JULY

We didn't do a WHOLE lot on the holiday because we both had to work, but in between shows our company had a BBQ where our "Big Boss" was doing all the BBQ-ing. Kashton had a bite of his first whole hot dog and LOVED it. He kept trying to steal bites from both me and Cameron.

While Daddy was working, we played in the yard and enjoyed the sunshine. Kashton LOVES being outside.


Our good friends Bob and Lana Nichols always host a 4th of July celebration with fireworks after everyone gets off work.


Living in a tourist town, we don't get to enjoy holidays as much because everyone has to work. We usually have to do all of our celebrating really late once all the shows are out. So, at 11:00 pm, I got Kashton out of bed and went to Bob's house. Cameron met us there at about 11:30 once his shows were over.

Kashton actually did really well. He fussed only a little bit, but was mostly fascinated by all the colors in the sky. The big "booms" didn't seem to bother him too much. He was only a little scared at first, but got use to it.


Later in the month, Kashton discovered how to get into the "Lazy Susan" in the kitchen. I walked around the corner and this is what I found.

It was a little difficult teaching him that this was not a good idea because I thought it was so funny.
Sometimes we go down to the lake and meet Cameron in between shows. ( Anyone think that campground looks so beautiful and tempting that you're just DYING to come to Branson and camp....and visit me. Larsen Family Reunion, anyone??? :> ) We usually get to spend a little over an hour with Daddy. So we play on the swings...


...swing really high with Daddy...

...and eat Egg Salad Sandwiches (anyone reminded of Grandma Larsen???)...


...which are really good.

And at the end of the day, we love to take luxurious baths in colored water.

This stuff is great and highly recommended by my sweet son.
And THAT has been our month. Hope all of you have had a good one too.

I'm glad your kid gets to enjoy baths (green ones too). I gave up on baths long ago and as soon as my kids can stand they shower. I hate baths, all the splashing and somehow I end up soaked and always have to clean the bathroom afterwards...oh you'll learn. Just have a few more. Cute pictures. Love the faux-hawk.

Cute pictures of your little guy. That is awesome that he wasn't scared of the fireworks. This was the first year that she wasn't scared of them and she is almost 4!

Hi Bethany-
I can't remember if I have ever commented on your blog or not. I check in on it occasionally. Your family is darling. I send my love and greetings.

Hey! I haven't seen you guys in years! I found you thru Kelly's site. It looks like life is so good, and it is so pretty out there! Right now I feel like anywhere is better than Vegas, where we live and it is so .!$@$@ hot. Kashton looks just like Cameron, it is scary. I think we know a mutual friend. Tommy D'Amico. I don't know if he said anything, but he and I went to high school together, and I saw him last October at our 10 yr. reunion. Please tell him hi for me. He is great. TAke care, Bethany, look in on me sometime!
