4th of July Fun

  I am happy to report that this years post about 4th of July Fun, does not include any meltdowns from any Firework hating little Fergusons.  For this very reason, last years 4th of July follow-up post was entitled:

 “4 Little Fergusons Fireworks: Fiasco or Fun? Um, Yes.”

  Photo from last year:

2 out of 4 sobbed through the whole thing

2012 4th of July

YAY!

  We had a great time, it’s super duper late, we just showered all the kids and it’s almost 10, so without further ado, 4th of July photos……

Patriotic music  by the Municipal Band the night before……

Never mind, 105* is just too hot for marching and dancing…..

The next morning:   The 4th of July Parade!

Biggest turn out we’ve seen yet! The streets were packed!

Steak Fajitas for supper.

After supper, Poppers, bike riding and a few fireworks.

Dale thought it’d be fun to teach Paxton to squeeze the poppers between his fingers since he couldn’t make them snap by throwing them.

Needless to say, Mommy was NOT impressed and we switched to stomping.

Destiny and Ty put on a bike show.

Then, fireworks time!  A short but sweet show, with fireworks found in the shed last time we cleaned up, plus a few daddy bought for a special treat!
