We had a great fourth of July. We spent the day at a friend's BBQ. Then that night we came home and watched the fireworks in our backyard. We put Meghan down to bed and let the boys enjoy the show.
Let me explain. The fourth of July is a bit nuts out here. It is a little unsafe. Any regular person can buy the high tech fireworks on the Indian Reservations. Then these unprofessional people set them off in their back yard or in the middle of the street. It is entertaining while you wonder if your house is going to make it through the night. Oh, and that's another thing. They shoot them off all night. And just when you begin to hate freedom, it stops!
I think the highlight of boys night was cookies and glow-in-the-dark bracelets! All in all, We still love the Fourth of July around here, but mainly for the Smore's!
