However Hosea has started a new thing that is not fun or great. He has started throwing fits, knock-down, drag out fits, where he literally throws himself onto the ground and screams. And of course everybody stares, and we the adults (and Micah) try to figure out what is wrong and why he is acting this way. I am hoping that this is short lived and may be caused by his lack of sleep and disruption of his schedule. Keeping that in mind all the things we did today were peppered with fits from Hosea, we did our best to ignore it and have a good time anyway. This was easy since the company was nice and the views were even better, more on this later.
After our picnic we were going to go to the mall (for those that don’t know that is what they call the area between the white house and the Washington monument), but decided that it would be better to go home and take naps.
After naps we went to the Air Force Monument. Mr. Vargas and I got separated from John and Anna’s car and had a nice little tour of I395 South and then back North, but we did finally find our way to where we were going. And aside from a couple more tantrums from Hosea and Josiah wanting a hotdog instead of the sandwiches that we packed, the kids did great. We had a great view of the fireworks and they were just far enough away that they weren’t loud enough to scare anybody.

Hope you had a safe and happy fourth.
Tomorrow we invade the beach…
