4th of July 2012

Our 4th of July was great. I'll go ahead and say that it being in the middle of the week was less than ideal, but at least the week seemed to go by a little faster. 

The night of the 3rd we were supposed to go over to my parent's house with my sister and her family for BBQ and fireworks but Ben got in a lot of trouble at school that day. Like biting kind of trouble. He had to stay home and miss out on the BBQ as a consequence. J and I discussed back and forth for an hour about whether or not we should let him go over and do fireworks. Ultimately we didn't want him to miss the whole holiday so he got to go later on in the night. He was super sad he missed seeing his cousins who had already left by the time we got there. I'm happy to report though we've had no more biting incidents.

My parents live in the city limits so fireworks at their house means smoke bombs, fountains, snap pops, and sparklers.

The afternoon of the 4th we went up to J's aunts house. Ben decided he was brave enough to jump from the diving board for the first time. 
He's been taking swim lessons so here's to hoping the floaties might be able to come off by the end of the summer!

J's aunt lives in the country so the fireworks are much bigger. While we waited for it to get dark the little kids did their fireworks.
