Fourth of July (only a month late)

So I do realize that it is August and that the Fourth of July was over a month ago, but I still need to post about it! So we had our usual Bar-b-Que at the Howard's house. The food was delicious and the food and company were great! We then came home and just relaxed for a while, trying to recoup from all the sun we enjoyed! We put Katelee down and were about to put Ethan down when Grandma and Grandpa Blackburn called and asked if Ethan could stay up a little longer and watch some fire works they were going to buy. We figured it was a special occasion so why not? Ethan and I laid on the ground while we waited for them to get to our house. Luck for Ethan Grandma and Grandpa brought Aunt Anna and Uncle Enrique with them!

This is Ethan and I laying on the ground! You can tell Ethan was really tired, he never just lays anywhere!

Ethan had fun picking up after the Pop Guns! But he wasn't so big on setting them off! I think the pop scared him...

Ethan playing with his first Sparkler! He wasn't scared of it at all, in fact we had to keep moving it away from him face!

Ethan watching the show from Grandma's lap!

And then from Aunt Anna's lap! Ethan had a great time, and slept very well that night! Even with all the crazy noise around. I am so grateful for the opportunity we have to celebrate our Country's Independence Day! I hope to instill in my kids the importance of this country and how blessed we are to live here! I am thankful for all of the men and woman who continue to fight for the freedoms that so many have previously died for! This land is a choice land, and I pray we keep it that way! Happy Fourth of July, a month late, EVERYONE!

Mason had those same jammies. I love the pic of you both laying down so exhausted! But so much fun getting to stay up late and watch the excitement on their faces!!

There's nothing wrong with posting about something a month late. I do it all the time - sometimes even 2 months late. I figure better late than never right?
SOunds like a fun time you all had.
