July 4th

We spent the 4th of July at home this year.  When we moved out here, everyone told us that fireworks were a big deal, but we couldn’t have anticipated how big.  We heard fireworks every night for a full week, and the actual 4th of July was like a war zone.  Booms were coming from every direction.  It turns out that Broady and Nathan were pretty terrified of the fireworks, so it made for a long week.

The evening before, we went down to the First Fridays event with free music and kids activities.  Nathan liked the race car.


On Saturday morning, Hannah and I did a flag craft.


That evening, our neighbors had a party and we went over there. There were lots of kids the same age running around.  We had a really good time.  Here is Nathan and his friend from across the street.


They loved the trampoline!


Here is Nathan preparing for fireworks.  Our neighbor put on a pretty good show, but he had one fall over and shoot towards the crowd and start a small grass fire. That was the tipping point for Nathan and I had to take him home.  It was probably for the best because I found Broady in a full panic when I got home.


Hannah liked the fireworks.  She had a big time at the party.  I think she ate about a dozen cupcakes.


This looks like it might become an annual neighborhood tradition.  Hopefully Nathan likes the fireworks better next year!
