The Fourth

It is always nice to have Casey home in the middle of the week, and the fourth was no exception. We spent the first part of the day at home.....readying ourselves for the celebrations that evening.

The kids were looking pretty cute in their patriotic wear.

My attempt at a shot of all four...

First, we went to a friend's house for dinner and swimming.  We had a great time, eating all of the required 4th food and then some....burgers, hot dogs, watermelon, a flag cake, root beer floats, cupcakes, cookies, etc.  There was food galore!  Then we swam and hung out for a while.  It was a fun evening.

Next, we headed over to Emmy and Grandad's to watch fireworks.  We were able to sit in the back of the truck and see all of the action!

Crazy girls with glow sticks!

 Aunt Morgan was there....and she was dressed in her patriotic best!

Graham seemed to like the fireworks, but the poor guy was so tired by the end.  He was such a trooper!

It was a fun day that ended with four very tired kids....but isn't that the way it is supposed to be?!
