Project 365: Day 92

4th of July

In the true Land of 10,000 Lakes way, I spent my 4th of July at a lake. Jamie and Adam's family cabin, to be exact. The lake setting was familiar, but the other part of the setting was new to me. All but one couple that gathered at the cabin this afternoon had a baby in tow (not including Adam's parents and Aaron's parents who have already done their parental duties). They were all wonderfully behaved, sweet kids. But, man, is it different socializing amidst mom+dad+baby! It is a world full of diaper changing, breastfeeding, and developmentally appropriate playing that I have minimal to no experience with.

Another reason to celebrate was Sylvia's almost-1-year-old-birthday. She got her first taste of cake. She was slow to recognize that it was food, but once she tasted it, she gleefully made a big ol' birthday mess of it.

Paul and I decided not to head out for fireworks this evening. Instead, we are spending the night at home relaxing and trying to calm the nerves of our dogs. They aren't big fans of the unofficial firework displays being lit off by our neighbors up and down the block.
