For the past couple of years, we've chickened out of taking our kids to see fireworks on the 4th because we figured they'd be too cranky to enjoy it from missing their bed time. This year, I was determined that Jake & Mal would finally see fireworks, so we planned to go to the Richardson show Monday night.
We had a very low-key day on Monday, just enjoying the day at home together. Justin won the best Daddy award on Sunday when he built this kiddie car wash for the twins. (Thanks, Cassie, for the idea!)
Monday morning was spent playing in the water & having a grand ole time!
We continued our fun with snow cones that afternoon & burgers eaten on the porch for dinner.But in the end, we decided once again that the kids might not do so well staying up for the fireworks. Maybe next year! As a consolation, Daddy went & bought Toy Story 2 (we previously only owned #3), & the kids watched it in their pajamas while eating popcorn. Everybody wins!
Don't worry, this little cutie had plenty of fun, too!I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday, traditional or otherwise.
