Here are some pictures from last weekends festivities, the 4th of July just happens to be one of my favorite times of year...
We started out by heading to the Stadium for some fireworks...big mistake?...the fireworks were great as usual but the entertainment** was terrible! (Some of us were NOT lucky enough to get Neil Diamond). Plus, we were fewer in number this year for the fireworks + parade, so that felt weird. The ONLY plus were the kids next to us with full-on rattails.
Saturday, we met up with some of Don's friends for a party and then headed to my parent's house for a BBQ.
For Father's Day we gave my Dad a fire pit and since then, the grandkids have been dying to roast hot dogs and marshmallows...so naturally we got our grill on. After eating we jumped on the tramp, played basketball (did you notice Don's rattail? I think he was really envious of the little boy at the fireworks or something), lit some fireworks of our own and had a little sing-a-long of America's Greatest Hits About America**.
**An idea that wouldn't be bad for entertainment at next year's firework show?? I would even be up for leading such an event.
