The Fourth of July is always a pretty low-key night in our family. We don't usually have huge cook-outs, or gatherings. We simply hang out, just the four of us. We wait until just before sunset, and let the kids dig into one of those mixed boxes of backyard firecrackers. It's always amazing to me how much enjoyment kids can get out of a box of sparklers and snappers. They look forward to it like Christmas morning. Kev's parents always come over and watch the fun. We set up our lawn chairs in our yard and ooh and ah over the neighbors very expensive fireworks that light up the neighborhood sky. We are so grateful that Kevin's parents are right around the corner now, and that they can be close for such wonderful times. It means so much for the kids to share these times with them.
Happy Fourth Everyone!
