Happy Fourth!

I didn't pull my camera out for the day. But we had fun. I asked Duncan in the morning if he knew what day it was. Upon telling him it was the fourth of July, he moaned, "Awh man! The Gold rush buying spree is OVER!" long pause, if you don't watch much TV, it's a commercial and unfortunately we watch too much TV. I then had to explain how it was the nations Birthday. Luckily he was interested in the information even if we didn't have any gold jewelry to turn in.

Jared had to work, so I let the kids play and watch TV. I made some fun snacks. Jared brought home some small fireworks. We cleaned the back yard together as a family and had fun letting off fireworks. We decided to let the kids stay up late and we drove over to the high school to watch the big fireworks. We got to see all but the grand finale. Lindsay had to go to the bathroom and Duncan wasn't feeling well. We ended up going home. But the fireworks were long and the kids were very tired. They normally go to bed at 7:30pm asleep normally by 8pm. After a little sleep-in the next day they raved about fireworks and wanted to know when they'd get to see more.
