The 4th of July has always been spent with family. We used to have our family from Oklahoma come in town for it too. Now that we have all gotten older and some with our own families now we have started o do things a little different. This is the first year I have not been with my mom and dad to celebrate the 4th of July. While it was different, it was still fun!
This year the 4th of July was on a weekday, Wednesday! Let me just say, that was the only day off at my day job and the entire rest of the week was tiresome!
On July the 3rd we went over to a friend’s house and watched firer works that their neighbors did. Let me just say it was not at a big park, but it sure was just as awesome! The best part was we got to spend time with friends and Ethan got to play with his friends while we chatted with ours. We were also really close to our house so it was nice that we did not have to sit in a long line to get on the highway to head home.
During the day on the 4th Ethan and I went swimming at the local pool. We held our breath underwater to see who could do it the longest, we did headstands to see who’s was better, then we went down slides and I taught him how to dive.
In the evening we went over to the same friends house and let all the boys shoot of firer works in the evening. They had a blast doing that while we watched and chatted. We had deserts and snacks over their too! It was so much fun.
Randy took photo’s and video! He is so talented! I am one lucky lady to have such a talented man!
Do you have any family traditions that you do for the 4th? How do you celebrate?
Thanks for reading!
