4th of July

Happy 4th of July friends and family! We love the 4th of July around here. We live in an amazing neighborhood for celebrating our independence. As I write this, I am sitting in my bed watching the fireworks still going off all around us through the window. What an amazing sight!
Today we went to church as a usual Sunday, then came home to have a fun BBQ with neighbors and friends. We ate good food and enjoyed good company in our friends' garage because it was raining Northwest style--not to hard but just more than a drizzle so you get soaked.
This picture says it all, too much fun to stop but I am soaked to the bones.
I was trying to get a picture of Andrew and he just kept running toward me with his sparkler in direct fire mode. I am glad no one got hurt.
Jacob was telling me a story as I took this picture. He was telling me that he likes this type of sparkler best because they shot out fire. Such a boy!
I hope you all had a happy and safe Holiday! --Love, emily

I believe this was the wettest 4th of July ever, too dreary and so wet. :( It is great that kids can have fun no matter the weather. I love the sparklers that shoot fire too, they are the best!

It looks like your family had lots of fun celebrating Independence Day for two days. Fireworks, parades, games, food, and friends. Fabulous! Love the matching shirts too!
