Luke LOVES Katy Perry's "Firework" song. Random, I know. But I really took advantage of that July 4th morning! I played it over and over again and he continued to serenade us with it for the rest of the day. We had red, white, and blue pancakes for breakfast and then we went and had a BBQ at my visiting teacher's house (plus there was a POOL). It was a lot of fun. Then for dinner we had Chili's (nothing much more American than Chili's, right?) and went to watch fireworks. Buuuut, we didn't know the best place to see them, since this was our first year of keeping the kids up late enough, so we ended up being pretty far away from the action. And Luke got bored. But Gracie seemed entertained! Oh well, maybe next year we'll do better.
Just a little comparison:
Look how much older they look! It makes me a little teary.
Here are some very uneventful pictures of the firework show:
Home again, home again, jiggety jig...
