Now that's what I call AWESOME!!!!

This year for the 4th we stayed home and spent the day with friends. After dinner we still had PLENTY of time before it got dark enough to light off any fireworks. So, the kids found things to entertain themselves....cheesing for the camera, playing games, and even Abby and Ashlan giving piggy back rides. We adults even got ourselves a few rousing games of hand and foot going. And Sierra and Austin decided to take a nap.

FINALLY it was time for the fireworks! while Bob was setting out the MANY fountains, the kids played with the sparklers.

Then it was on to the "big" stuff. Well, as big as you can legally get here. We were definitely reminiscing about WA where we could light off just about anything we wanted. But, alas, at least we could do something. We had A LOT of fountains and so we got to decide which were our favorites. I think I enjoyed the cactus the best.
Andrew really enjoyed himself too and kept saying "Now that's what I call AWESOME!!!" Sierra was SO tired but was just mesmerized my the whole thing...Ben, well, he was falling asleep.
Good times though were had by all. Can't wait for next year!!
