One Hot Day

 This was the first July 4th where we stayed in NJ. Usually, we go back home to our annual family party. The fun thing about NJ on July 4th....an endless amount of festivals and parades to attend. We were supposed to go into NYC to see one of Greg's high school friends, but a storm warning kept us in NJ. Instead, we chose a small festival in the next town over.
 I have to admit, I cringe when I hear the ice cream truck bell. My mouth said "yes", but inside I was saying "noooo!" to the ice cold food coloring cone.

 While the boys were on the spinning red wheel we met the nicest lady. She was an identical twin {her extended family has 14 sets of twins!} and gave us much encouragement and insight into the twin bond. I love how little chats like that happen just when I need them.

 This tea cup ride brought back nauseous memories of my childhood at Roseland Park. In fact, see that empty car behind the boys? During an earlier ride, a little guy lost his cookies in it. Gag.
 The boys reluctantly watched the Polka Dot Band perform. I think they liked it, but thought they were a bit too old to be watching a kiddie band. Made me miss our 'ol Wiggles days.
 The boys had a great time participating in the Wild 'n Wacky challenge. Sort of like those games shows where you get a pie thrown in your face, or get slimed.
                                  Very fun end to a very hot afternoon.

Looks like a great time although it wasn't your initial plans for the 4th! It used to be that I loved all that spinning action but now, I don't know that I could handle it. I get sick just spinning Andrew around.

That looks like a fun day! Except spinning. I just can't spin like I used to. ;)
