4th of July

We lived through it again this year! :) In fact, we decided to participate in the chaos a little more this year. If you haven't read our blog from last year, you need to go back to July 07 and do so. To summarize it though, 4th of July is HUGE here! Not only do cities, etc. do large fireworks displays, but it is legal for anyone to shoot fireworks. Well...I should say not all of them are "legal" but they get shot off anyway! This year, we got lots of little ones that the kids like to "help" with but we also got some big ones that Jay could do! We had no idea how BIG even the legal fireworks were. He started with one and I can't even describe to you the sound it made when it went off! We don't have many good pics but Tim got some video I will try to post later. Here are a few other pics of the day though.

This year was extra special also because my cousin and her family just moved to the Seattle area so they came up for the day also! Even though they are about an hour away from us, it is so wonderful to have family near! The second picture is of my cousin's daughter with Madison & Taitlyn.

So Fun!!! I thought about how big y'alls fireworks probably were while we were setting off our smoke bombs and throwing down our "pops"!!!
