Our 4th of July was spent with friends and family. We started out with burgers on the grill (charcoal grill). Yummy!! Then we spent the whole afternoon in the pool.
We have a tradition on the 4th of July. We make t-shirts every year. I didn't get a great picture this year because of the lack of cooperation but you can tell what they look like and I'm going to try to get a better picture today.
Our little town always has a big 4th of July celebration with a small carnival. Everything is free. We never go to the carnival because it is soooooo crowded. But we do take advantage of the fireworks. My pictures are really crappy but I did get a little video. It is blurry but you can hear how loud it was.
Usually we have to wait forever for the fireworks but this year they actually started on time. I always pack a little bag of goodies to keep the kids busy. This year after the fireworks we hung around and I pulled out my goodies.
We also had Neon Glow Necklaces and Bracelets.
Turning off the flash was the only way to get a picture of the glow.
Finally, I pulled out Air Head Whistle Pops. They were really cool because they were slide whistles. If you slid the stick up and down while blowing, it made a cool sliding sound.
