How Was Your 4th?

Our kids got wet, sandy and sticky. Overall we had a good time.

We stayed at Aunt Terra's and Uncle Tyson's house to grill, play and make S'mores. Yesterday we bought the boys super soakers from Toys R Us. The time to buy stuff like that is now. Much of their outdoor toys are on clearance. The boys played with them.

Here's our Daddy holding his nephew Emerson.

Emerson loves to look at whomever is holding him. He really reacts when he is sung to. Especially the bumblebee song! Emerson's newish things are to be in the crawl position and rock back and forth, he walks when he holds an adult's hands, he sits up if he's positioned right.

When it was time to go home, we gathered everything up, but my purse. I had to drive across town one more time to get it. UGGG!!! Our neighbor's light off a lot of firecrackers. We opted to watch them instead of buying some this year. It's only been 2 years since Omaha decided to legalize firecrackers.  We bought some last year. Now Mica and Isaak think we have to get some. I grew up only getting them sometimes.

I don't think I've ever lived in a state where firecrackers are legal!

We had a great 4th. Emerson looks so little with your Hubs.

I'm glad you had a good time! I never even knew until a few years ago that fireworks weren't legal everywhere! They sure are here!

It was hot here too but not as bad at 9:30 when the local fireworks were started. They only lasted half an our but were really pretty. I had convinced my toddler that they would be fun to watch and after holding on to me with her head burried for about 5 minutes she raised up to start oohing and aahing like everyone else. yay!

Emerson looks so good! I like how he was looking up at your hubby.
