Happy 4th of July!
We had a BBQ at my moms, the kids swam then we went to watch the fireworks. The kids watched the fireworks in the back of Ryans truck. It was fun.

The kids loved the fireworks but got tired of them after awhile & was wondering when they would be done. Ryan was so fascinated by the fireworks, you can tell by the look on his face.
SUPERMAN!! Gabriel love's to be catapulted through the air. He's my little fish. He love's to dive & will swim halfway across the pool under the water. He's really good.

Putting on a show for mom, they all tried to jump in at the same time. My kids can swim all day if we let them. Bella does have a swimsuit but prefers not to wear it.

Gabriel's test for the Gold Stripe white belt

Gabriel was so excited to get his gold belt, his test consisted of having to do their fight stance and their form Kamsa & a bunch of things but the one thing that amazed me was they had to sit with their legs crossed & their eyes closed for about 2minutes, if they opened their eyes they wouldn't receive their belt. I was nervous for Gabriel because how many 4year olds can sit still with their eyes closed for 2minutes. I was so proud of him because he really wanted his belt & he worked hard for it. I can't wait for his next test.

Doing punches
He had to hold this position for a little bit.
