4th of July fun!

We basically spent three days celebrating the Fourth of July!  On Saturday we headed up to Hyde Park and spent the holiday with the Thomas family.  We had quite the firework show!  Then on Sunday we had a 'sabbath approved' holiday and just did family stuff.  Monday morning we headed out early and hit up the parade followed by 4-wheelin' and then a big BBQ with the Mickelsens!  I am still exhausted from all the FUN!!!
The three kiddos in their 4th of July garb!

Playing on Grandma and Papa's slip-n-slide!

Sparkler time!!!

Mesmerized by fireworks!!!

The 4th of July parade!

Pressy LOVES firetrucks and kept waving to them!!

My kids favorite float... How to train your dragon!

Violet clapping at the parade!

What happens when you have 2 generations of pyros?

It's called tank wars...

and LOTS of fireworks!!!

This is called the "Brew-ha-ha" and look how HUGE it is!!!
(notice my hand in relation to it!)

Watching the show!
Sparkler time!

The "Brew-ha-ha" going off (this is before it malfunctioned and blew itself apart!  That was a REAL show!)
