4th of July

We had a fun fourth of July... a few weeks ago! The first half of the day, my neighbor Debbie and I took the boys to the gardens at St. John the Divine cathedral. It was so simple, with just a fountain and some steps, but it kept them very entertained for almost an hour. After that we stopped at Artopolis to get some gelato... YUM! 

For dinner we met a few families at Riverside Park, right above Grant's Tomb. There is a fun little playground there and a nice big grassy area, so the kids had fun running around and wearing themselves out. Asher was introduced to a frisbee and it was love at first sight. We had yummy food and had great conversation. It was a great night!

Sayer has spotted the cake, and thinks it looks good
Sayer, after he tried to grab the cake and Nate said "no" He was NOT very happy. He almost kicked the cake. But don't worry, it came out undamaged.  It looks a little sad and lopsided in these pictures.  I blame the heat making the cream melty.  :)

The saddest part about our 4th was that we didn't see a single firework! :(  Sad, considering that NYC supposedly has the best fireworks show in the country.  Oh well.  Next year I think the kids will be ready to stay up and see them.
