What is the best part of summertime?
Well 4th of July of course!!
We are still sort of recovering from our vacation hangover, but luckily my friend Erin was having a giant 4th of July BBQ, so all we had to do was show up and enjoy the festivities. We didn't have to spend a fortune on fireworks, everyone else brought theirs, so we just sat around and enjoyed the pyrotechnic display. There were (what seemed like) thousands of kids running around playing so my kids had a blast getting sticky and dirty with all the others.
We brought our own tofu dogs to grill and loaded up on all of the classic picnic junk food that is required of the holiday.
Rockstar husband came home early and stayed home with Peanut who was having a hard time pushing his bedtime back. But Bug, Sunshine and I stayed for the fireworks. For being up until a little past 11, they did surprisingly well.
We really had a great time.
** As a side note, I would like to point out Bug's super patriotic picture with the flag. Being the perfectionist that he is, he was bummed that I wouldn't photo shop an bald eagle flying over him to get the perfect effect. He cracks me up :)
