I thought I'd share a few shots from our 4th of July. I wasn't too keen on going out that night. The fireworks weren't scheduled to start until 10:30 or so which was nearly 3 hours past the kids bedtime. But I am a crank about that stuff and lucky for me and the kids, E is not. So we left M with the grandparents and headed to the beach. I am so glad we went. It was a cool clear evening and the aunts and uncles had sparklers for the kids. The show was great but the sunset and fun were better - and I think (selective memory here) the kids slept in the next day.
