I love this picture of Mason getting ready to try out his new pool. Mason will turn 5 soon and for his birthday, the family got a pool. His birthday party will consist of 5 little boys enjoying that pool (with a superhero theme!). In a quite unusual Independence day, Randy and I spent the afternoon at Maddie and Mason's house and enjoyed some barbecued ribs and swimming. Later in the evening, Scott and Jessica joined us at the park for some fireworks. They had to work and couldn't make the afternoon event. For the last several years, we have hosted family and friends at our house for the 4th. It was nice to just float in the pool and enjoy the day!
