Our 4th Of July

     I hope you all had a great 4th of July!  I didn't get on here yesterday because I was spending time with my family and I hope you were able to also.  John was actually on call for work so we couldn't go far from home.  First let me say that being on call sucks.  He pretty much could not do much because if he got a call he had to be able to up and go.  By 1:00 or so he decided that he was in the clear.  So we went to the store to get some things to make Hamburgers and the boys wanted to get wet so we go them a little pool. 

     While the boys played in the water John made us some yummy burgers.  After burgers the boys both fell asleep early.  We had to wake them before the fireworks began.  Westgate (the shopping/restaurant center surrounding the Coyote arena) was planning a firework show at 9pm.  We live close so we hoped to see the show from home.  Once the boys were up we went out to our driveway.  We noticed lots of neighbors were out doing the same. 

     John showed Jayden how to use the sparklers.  Jayden was very hesitant and didn't want anything to do with it.  But after slowly touching the sparkler and then trying it he decided he loved them. 

     Soon the firework show began and Jayden stood on John's work truck to see the show.  Evan was not sure what was happening, but he was watching everything. 

     Jayden liked the show, but wanted to watch while holding his sparklers.  It was really nice to see the show from the driveway and not have to fight crowds to see the show or to leave.  Only thing I missed was the boys falling asleep in the car on the way home, lol! 

     What did you do?  Did you see a firework display?  Did you light your own off?
