4th of July Festivities

Paul and Christy invited us over for their annual 4th of July party. They invited several friends and we had many children running around their yard. The adults sat back and chilled out for awhile.
Chef Ben was the smoker of the chicken, burgers, and dogs. Yum good!

The kids took turns riding on the go-cart, playing ball, and climbing on the playset.

Cheeseballs and beer are great on 4th of July ; )

Sparklers, snap-pops, and smoke bombs were the favorite of the kids.

Ben and Paul having fun lighting the fireworks for the kids.

After the kid fireworks, the men went and got the big show ready. When it got dark they set off a fabulous display of fountains and beautiful fireworks in the dark starry sky. The kids stayed in the fort of the playset with a play by play of "Oohs", "ahhs" and "awesomes" coming from their seating area. This was the first year that Cody stayed outside watching the fireworks the whole time. He usually runs for the house as soon as the big boomers start. He was proud of himself and was glad that he got to see the great show.It was a wonderful night of fun and festivities with our friends. We were all worn out when we got home. !
