Fourth of July Fun

This weekend we enjoyed time with family as we celebrated the fourth of July.  Sunday night we cooked out with Adam's family and shot off some fireworks for the first time.  My portion of the meal was simple, star shaped fruit skewers and a red and white bowl full of Texas Caviar which happens to be an addictive dip or cold salad; either way, it goes down easy!

My handsome boys had fun while doing fireworks.  (Lawson had his "safety glasses" on.)

Ava Jane enjoyed watching from afar.

We enjoyed watching the boys excitement as they lit the puck and then their roman candles, sparklers and many of the other twisting firecrackers that sparked and sprayed out vivid colors.  (Oh how I love this daughter of mine, she has my whole heart, and I'm thrilled she calls me Mom!)

On the Fourth we'd planned to head to the lake, but with the awful weather forecast, we decided to stay home, do the pool and then watch the fireworks at the Country Club.  The kids enjoyed the ice-cream and popsicles by the pool.

We had fun playing in the water!

It happened to be a nice evening, even giving us a little bit of a breeze as we waited for the pops to start.  It was a beautiful evening as we celebrated our country's birthday and the freedom we enjoy each day!
