Happy July 4th!

We had a fun filled day!  We were able to spend some time with sweet friends swimming and eating lunch!  Walt enjoyed playing with his new friends, and I can't believe that I didn't take pictures of him with the other boys!  Then, after nap time we joined together with the neighbors for a cookout.  Walt stood on a little boy's scooter and smiled so big for the picture. Hmm...I wonder what he will want for Christmas this year!

I tried out a new recipe, but it will definitely need some tweaking.  Please let me know if you have ideas on how I can make some good sweet potato fries!  I tossed them in Italian dressing and red pepper, and then, I baked them for about an hour.  They were good but could use some improvements.  I got a good beginning point from a friend while we were there, but this may be a continual growing process.  I love french fries, especially the sweet potato ones, so it is worth the time!

Walt and his Daddy getting ready for the party!  He was still moody, so it was hard to get him to smile for a picture.

Once we we were around the other people, Walt brought out the charm, and he was all smiles!  Thankfully, sweet Katie snapped this shot so that I didn't miss the moment!  Woo hoo!  Shortly afterwards Walt could not get his hand out of the Doritos bag, after I continued to tell him no.  He was focused in on them, so I really don't know how many he ate by the end of the night, but his mouth was orange with guilt.  He smiled at a few of the ladies working his magic for a few extra chips when he couldn't reach them.  Thankfully, I was able to get him to sit for a moment and eat a little bit of fruit too.
