Hope everyone had a safe and Happy Independence Day!
We had a HOT day. Cousin Rhianna and her husband Russ had to leave in the afternoon to return home (it was so good to see them over the weekend!) and we chose not to go to the fair across the street. It was 100F late into the evening… whew! Besides, after dinner, we had fun watching Kids' Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune in a family competition. How often do we get to do that? We went out to the front yard at sundown and watched the fireworks from the driveway. Brad and Brian walked around the block to watch the show a bit closer, but Honor and I stayed home with her grandparents.
Grandpa had sparklers!!
We enjoyed the fireworks, and we could hear the announcer and music from across the road, but we were comfy at home.
And we had fun with the sparklers that Grandpa gave the kids. The next door neighbors also had a bunch of light-up-bang stuff for us to enjoy.
Then the UFO showed up… o wait… that’s just more fireworks from across the street.
Honor kept us entertained between volleys.
Eventually the guys wandered back home and joined in the fun.
Brian liked drawing stars with the sparklers
Honor just danced
We set a few things off in the street too. (We did wait for cars to go by first… just saying… )
Sharing the fire
Brian channels Harry Potter
um… what did he summon? A fire horse?
Let’s see if Honor can do it… she winds up her wand…
Hmm? What did she get? A Dragon? A Flamingo?

Hope you had fun too!
