Ain't no party like an Independence Day party 'cuz the fireworks don't stop! Or something like that. ;-)
I hope everyone had a fun-filled 4th like we did! This past Friday, my mom & Jeff came over to celebrate an early Independence Day. We had a great steak dinner & finished off the night with leftover bottle rockets from last year! The girls were less than thrilled when they didn't explode into colorful bursts in the sky, but they'd get that tomorrow!
On the real 4th of July we did our normal thing & headed to the Watson's for some pool time, cousin time, food, a parade & fireworks. We commandeered Bec's jeep for the occasion & borrowed our neighbor's trailer to get "patriotically tropical" for the parade. ;-) The kids had so much fun decorating the float, making water balloons & throwing out candy to the onlookers. We did not win this year, however, I think brains are already working on next year's float! :-)
Once the sun set, we went outside to light some poopy puppies & sparklers. Have you ever seen a poopy puppy? You light the back end of this firework puppy & it starts "pooping" a long trail of ash. The kids think it's the funniest thing, so we keep buying them! :-)
At 9pm we walked to the end of the road to watch the fireworks over Clear Lake. The fireworks were a big hit with the kids & there were lots of oohs & aahs! We went home shortly after they were over & got to see a few more cities close by doing fireworks on our way home.
Hope everyone had a great 4th of July!
