We started our celebrating early with a cookout at my Aunt Janet and Uncle Tim's house last night on the 3rd. It's become a family tradition now to go over there to eat and shoot fireworks and we look forward to it every year. The darn rain came through a couple of times but we didn't let it spoil our fun. We caught a few pictures of the evening.
Noah, Drew and Aiden posing in their firecracker t-shirts we made at the library on Thursday.
A bunch of the cousins gathered on the blanket to watch Great Aunt Janet shoot off her famous "fire balloons".
Here's one all folded up and lit. She's waving goodbye b/c there is a picture of my Aunt Jane on that newspaper and she's saying she's sending her into space.See the black fire ball rising up?? I love the look on my aunt's face....I think she enjoys it as much as the kids!!
It was a fun evening and we have more fun to be had today. Let's hope the rain stays away....
Happy 4th of July!!!
