4th of July & Happy Birthday To Me!

Our fourth was pretty uneventful and laid back....which is the way we like it. We had some friends over for dinner, which was wonderful; smoked ham, pineapple casserole, potato salad, rolls and THE BEST chocolate brownies for dessert (thanks Bridget).

Naturally, the second the kids got their last bite down they were chomping at the bit to play with the sparklers and firecrackers.

(Just a little warning that these pics are completely unedited...I'm not in the mood...sorry.)

After we grew bored with the sparklers (we still have a TON left for New Year's), we walked around front for the firecrackers. The kids loved them. Well, let me rephrase that, the boys loved them. This is how Anna Kate felt about them...

I know I shouldn't laugh, but O.M.G. it was hilarious!!!! Poor baby, she was petrified of the loud 'popping' the firecrackers made.

The fourth was also my 35th birthday. T-h-i-r-t-y - F-i-v-e .........
