Our Fourth of July

I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July.

We celebrated the 4th of July at my Aunt and Uncle's house again this year. They have a pool in their backyard, so we had a great time swimming in the sun, eating yummy food and desserts and enjoying time with family!

The festive pies I made for dessert.

The yummy red velvet dessert my mom made.

Later that evening, we went with my sister and her family to see the fireworks show in the town over from us. They put on a great fireworks display and we were super close. We had so much fun there. Jackson and Mason were a little scared of the big booms, but they did pretty good considering how close we were.

They had a live 80's cover band playing while we waited for it to get dark enough for the fireworks.

The boys danced in the grass while we waited. :-)

Then at dusk, they started the fireworks show!

We had a great 4th of July this year!

What a great day! I have seen so many kids Tay's age do fireworks and I'm so impressed. How do you get them to stay up so late. Tay is zonked by 8pm at the very latest. I would have LOVED to show her fireworks.
