We started out at an event called Freedom Fest put on by the local Christian Radio Station. It was fun, with lots of bounce houses for the kids to jump in, and great concerts, but it was HOT!
Then we tried to cool off with a dip in the pool...
Last week, we took B to the doctor and learned he had a perforated ear drum. Ouch!
But, we tried to make the best of it, and just crammed their ears full of vaseline and cotton balls! ha ha.
Then, we got all dried off and brought out the sparklers. This was the first time we have ever allowed the kids to hold the sparklers on their own. They were pretty scared at first, and then they really liked it... so much that they made us light up every box we had! ha ha.
Sweet Baby H was pretty tuckered out from all of our fun activities, but R & B were brimming with excitement and wanted to watch the fireworks from the roof of their daddy's car... which was parked safely in our driveway! ha ha. (they were our neighbor's fireworks).
We finished up the evening with all of us cuddling on the couch, watching the fireworks shows on TV. All in all, I think the kids had a really fun day... and so did their parents!
