Fourth of July recap

We went out to the lake for the holiday yesterday. It was a great time!

We swam a lot, took the boat out for some tubing,

got to know a family member that we haven't seen in a long time (or in my case, ever!),

had fun with friends,

lit some fireworks (he's only FIVE, people!),

and watched a bunch more.

Between the spectacular show that our guys put on and the neighbors across the bay, we got to see some beautiful fireworks!

Here are the boys with our resident fireworks expert, Stephen (otherwise know to them as "the fireworks man" or "Mr. Fireworks":

I wasn't sure what Bridget would think of the fireworks, but she stayed up late and enjoyed every minute of them! The LOUD booms and snaps and whistles didn't bother her a bit and she loved watching all the bright lights (as long as I was holding her, that is!). I did put her down for a few moments and was able to snap this picture of her:

What a fun and full day! Hope you all had fun and have a great weekend!

Sounds delightful. I'm a water and warmth fan. :-)

Fun to see Stephen too....I can see him being "Mr. Fireworks".

Gonna try your friendly fireworks today since we did not have any on the 4th...thanks for sharing.
