Happy 4th! Our little town does fireworks on the 3rd of July...why? I have no idea, that's just how they roll. Our friends and neighbors usually have a kickass July 3rd party and this year was no exception. They rented this huge bouncy water slide for the kids. It was so great seeing Kevin play and have fun with no hesitation. He wasn't afraid at all, just played and played...until we forced him to stop and eat. Then he played some more, so cool!!
They had tons of great food, Mai-Tais in a bucket, snow cones, necklaces for the kids, sparklers (which we needed to sign a waiver for Fireman Bill and prove our insurance before letting our kids participate), Coronas with lime (the greatest summer beer ever), cake, great people, just all sorts of fun. That's how we roll.
My kids loved the snow cones, even went back for more 'color'. They just couldn't get enough!! Kayla loved the sparklers, she was trying so hard to be careful and got a big kick out of the whole ordeal!
When it started getting dark, we packed up the kids in the wagons and walked over to the park. Not too far, probably a 5-10 minute walk.
We claimed a spot on the grass, ate more snacks, played with little toys from the kids goodie bags, and waited for the darkness to fall completely. My kids loved the firework show, great to watch and since we were not too close it wasn't too loud. We pulled them home and poured them into bed. It was a great day!!!
