Fourth of July Fun!!

Hope everyone had a good fourth of July this year. This year we did our usual. We had a great BBQ with family and then we went down to the river to watch the fireworks. It was nice. We were a little worried about the weather because it had been a little windy that afternoon, but it was actually a really nice night.

A couple of days before the fourth, we had a really weird rainstorm. It was sunny outside all day and then a couple of gray clouds rolled in and it just started to dump rain. Haylee wanted to go outside and play in it so we put her rain coat on and got her unbrella and out she went. I think she was out there for like 10 seconds and she was ready to come in. But I got this really cool picture of her before she came in. I was pretty proud of it.

This is us at the river waiting for the fireworks to start. This was Kyls first year at the fireworks so we were anxious to find out what he was going to think about it all. He was interested for about 2 minutes and then he got grumpy and then he fell asleep.
Grandma brought the kids candy and glow sticks so Haylee was content sitting in her chair waiting and eating her skittles.

While Seth was waiting he got the camara and took a picture of the Sunset. It was another really good picture. It was a really pretty sunset that night.

Haylee and Kyle loved the glow sticks. This would have been a lot better picture if we could figure out how to turn the flash off on our camara. It was dark and the glow sticks were glowing and they would make there whole mouth glow. It was pretty cool.

After the fireworks we went home and put Kyle to bed. Haylee wanted to do some sparklers though so we went out in the backyard and lit off some sparklers. She had a lot of fun with it.

Happy 4th Everybody!!
