Happy 4th of July! It is rainy...and we have no major plans. Chris did purchase a handful of fireworks. I do not like buying them because I think they are silly. Don't get me wrong, I love to watch them. But, I can sit in the backyard and watch them forever without ever spending any money. But, Chris wanted to get a few fun ones for the kids, so he did that.
After a day of rain, we went to Chris' parents for dinner. We think it is important that our kids get to see their cousins and grandparents as much as possible. We do not get to see everyone very often, so the kids really had fun playing.
Back at home, we shot off just a few fireworks and let the kiddos have sparklers. Asher got a 3rd degree burn, so perhaps we will skip those next year. All the kids really liked the fireworks this year, even Alivia! Shocker! The kids went right to sleep in spite of the noise.
In the afternoon as we watched a couple home videos from our previous address, Chris and I are thankful for our home in Papillion where the traffic is null, the people are kind, with a nice lake to run around, and where are neighbors are SO NICE!! Imagine that! At our previous address, we made everyone stay inside because we did not feel it was safe to be outside with the drunken neighbors shooting bottle rockets at one another from their mouths. Here...oh...it is so much better!! We love our new neighbors. Let's just say that we can now play in the driveway or in the backyard peacefully. Perhaps that made our move worth it.
Happy 4th of July! Until next year...
