July 4th was another great one for us. We spent it as we have the past couple years, in the mountain at our friend's home. It's gorgeous there, and we love spending time with them.
The boys always have a great time.
And the sprinkler was perfect for that hot day.
We are always fed great food too. How cool is this fire pit grill?
A table full of goodness.
But a sad reminder that our "Mimi" is deployed, when we have to eat store bought potato salad.
There was a lot of playing.
And Papa Jay loves the boys.
They are show-offs for him. :)
Papa Jay has the most amazing flower garden I've ever seen.
And Steph and I got a fresh bunch of peonies. They smelled wonderful.
The boys took the dogs to the river to play for a bit.
And what's 4th of July without s'mores?
Then it was time for the fun.
I am shocked that this kid was lighting fireworks. He used to want to sit in the car and hide until it was all over with.
Gotta have smoke bombs.
And sparklers. :)
Then we set off the good stuff.
It was a bummer that Mimi and Chris couldn't be here this year, but we had a great day, and look forward to next year.
