4th of July

It was a great 4th of July this year. It was hot. So we went swimming with my parents in the morning. It was such a fun pool. I wish I got photos of it. They had an awesome slide and playground and Kaitlyn got so brave going under the water without plugging her nose. Brad slept the ENTIRE way there and while we were there and all the way home. Probably like 5 hours. Such a good sport going places, especially in the heat.

Then we had a BBQ at our place with some close friends. It was a great time. Then we set off some fireworks.

Here is a photo before and after the fireworks. I love their expressions.

And here are some more photos of the kids in their chairs watching the fireworks. So much fun.

Kaitlyn was scared to hold the crazy sprinklers that Alma bought.  She did the more calm ones but Alma got some that changed colors and got pretty hot. Whitney was no scared at all. She never dropped it either. Such a brave girl.

Then we hurried and drove to see the fireworks in our town and got there just in time to find a spot to park (even though it was crazy crowded) and we found a big grassy area that we could sit in and ate twizzlers and watched a HUGE firework show. It was so close and so big you could feel it in your chest.

Brad did so great during the show. No crying.

The 4th of July is my favorite holiday. No commercial gifts to have to buy for everyone you know. Just good food, good family and friend moments and the summer nights.
