How was everyone's holiday weekend?
I want to thank everyone for their comments on my going to the movies alone question. It made me feel much better about going. I ended up seeing Eclipse (and yes, Jesse makes fun of me for going, especially alone). It was my first IMax experience and while the floors must have been mopped with soda instead of water, I did enjoy the movie. I just borrowed the books from one of my co-worker's, too.
On Saturday, we went to our community pool for 4th of July activities. M ended up getting a few prizes (she was too little to play, so they just gave them to her) and she definitely enjoyed her water ice. The Monster watched Bolt for the first time (and watched pretty much the whole movie), but there were fireworks outside our building that scared her. She jumped out of the chair and ran with her empty dinner plate crying. We took her out to see them, but she was still a little spooked.
Sunday we sat around all day waiting for the Verizon guy to finish up so that we could do something. By the time he was done, it was time to get ready to go see the fireworks. Last year M actually slept through all of them, but she was awake this time and she didn't cry.
She loved watching the other kids play

All in all, we had a pretty good weekend.
