Happy 4th of July

We wanted to wish everyone a Happy 4th of July!
Today Steve and I spent the day tiling our backsplash in the kitchen-whoohoo what 4th of July fun! We did manage to cook out tonight and then spent some time with the boys doing fireworks in our driveway. The boys had a great time-I thought they would be scared but they weren't! I am having to get used to the fact fireworks are legal here and they even sell them year round. Our neighbors put on quite a show-this made me a little nervous because the sparks were flying over our trees and our house, but all ended well and we got to see some pretty amazing backyard fireworks. Tomorrow we will head to "Riverfest" to see real fireworks.
Steve and the boys with SPARKLERS!

Steve found three foot long SPARKLERS and the boys loved playing with them!

Grayson could not stop smiling!

I told Steve tonight that at some point he will have to explain the "real" meaning of Independence Day to them and not that it is just about shooting fireworks and grilling! We hope everyone enjoyed their day.
