4th of July

For our 4th of July festivities, we went downtown to enjoy the parade, had a bbq with my dad, Connie and Evan, lit daytime fireworks, which turned into a water balloon fight and ended the day with the grown ups and Colton lighting the cool night time fireworks.

Firework mishaps: (to let you know that this is in the presence of three highly responsible, completely sober adults -one being an ultra cautious nurse!) One large one fell on it's side and shot numerous fireballs in a circular radius-under the car, under our neighbors 40 ft evergreen, one coming within inches of Jesse's leg to knock a glass off of the bumper of our car and shatter on the ground. Then, a piece of Colton's sparkler went flying and landed right on the bag of fireworks, starting a small fire, luckily we threw the bag into the damp grass, putting out the bag before any fireworks were lit. And finally Connie got a little singed on her leg from a small fleck of firework hitting her!

Evan- not liking the ones that make noise.

What comes around, goes around!
Our little firecracker!

Happy Fourth of July everybody!
Apu (from the Simpsons) said it best "Now go celebrate your country's independence by blowing up a small part of it!"
