We had a great, but wet Fourth of July around these parts. Our plans to take the boys to pool were a no-go, but we still managed to have an awesome day. We started the morning off with a big breakfast at Cracker Barrel and then headed a little bit north to Jeremy's parents house. We hung out there and tried to grill out in between the rain showers. I ate so much food at lunch that I didn't think I could possibly want dinner... No worries, I still ate dinner.
We got back home around 4:30ish, madly cleaned our house and my parents came over around six-ish for another cookout. We did manage to get everything grilled at our place (thanks to having a covered porch). We all ate more than we should have again, but still, so good!
A neighbor and his friends spend a ridiculous amount of money on fireworks every year, so we were lucky to just walk out our back door to see them. Before the big show, we had a little fun with our own fireworks and sparklers. Cayden was a little timid with the sparklers; Sawyer would have held the part that was on fire if we had let him. And y'all, I wish I had recorded Sawyer's reaction to one of the fireworks that Jeremy set off. It's one of those that you light and it just annoyingly makes loud noises for about ten seconds in the road. Sawyer was all excited and then his face turned to horror as he ran back toward me. So cute and sad and hilarious all at once.
Overall? We had a great holiday. The boys' reaction to the fireworks show was more than we could have hoped for. And despite Sawyer's expression in most of the photos, I promise he was enjoying himself. Good memories for sure...
