July 4, 2017 | We always head to the lake for July 4th, and always enjoy some lame beautiful fireworks! This year she really got into the smoke bombs…a LOT. But I even convinced her to hold a few sparklers! We got the boat cleaned/in the water for the first time this season, and brother Bruce even helped! He didn’t want a ride, but we managed to get a couple of rides in. I think E tries to avoid the boat because she knows it always puts her to sleep… 🙂
We did let E swim a bit by herself off the boat, which was both exciting and crazy. Is she old enough for that?! But she loved it! Seriously, when did she get so big. I love watching her swim and jump into the water. Such a great weekend!
Then we returned home, and went to my parents house for a little cook-out. My sister purchased some small fireworks (not legal in our city) and thought she’d be sly and set them off in the backyard. Only the ladybug firework was loud, insane, and flew OVER the houses…even the kids were concerned!! LOL
