The boys began a game of ball in the backyard.
Andrew the little pro baseball player. Soon after this we had a downpour and everyone made a run for the porch. The wind started whipping around and blew a few more ice storm leftovers from their trees.
Even though it was pouring, the men did what they do best...grilling and frying up some fish.
A break in the storm...let's throw Snap-Pops.
Ben lighting colored smoke bombs.
When it became dark we got out the sparklers. Andrew is such a cutie!
Cody loved the sparklers.
Adam had to get two sparklers, Mr. Independence Day.
We had to rush the kids after this because it began sprinkling again and we wanted to start the fireworks before another storm front came through. We got half way into the firework show and a monsoon hit. The firework men braved it as long as they could and kept setting off as many as they could light in the downpour. They would light one and it would fizzle out in the rain, then they would light two more and one would go off. We would all cheer. Finally their lighters wouldn't even work and they had to take a break until the weather let up. The rain finally slowed enough for them to finish the show. Great job firework guys!
Thanks for a great time Petitt's, even through a very tough time. We love you guys!
