4th of July

The kids kicked off the weekend with some sparklers with the neighbor friends.  Ben was afraid to hold a sparkler until he saw Gwen holding one:)

Friday was beautiful and we spent it at Gigi and Pepaw's.  There were mega crab legs (Avery ate her weight in shrimp and crab), mega sparklers, and mega smoke bombs.  Such a fun day and night!

The kids had a blast at our friends house on the 4th.  There were lots of friends to play with and of course kid jello shots and popsicles.

We were tired and didn't want to fight the crowd for the big Tulsa fireworks but we caught a nice show from the highway on the way home.  And a hill by our house provided a nice vantage point to see quite a few nearby fireworks plus the Tulsa ones (although they looked pretty small!).

A couple final sparklers when we got home and we had to get the exhausted kids in bed.

We had more fun at the pool on Sunday but unfortunately I got a virus or something.  Blech.  Bad way to end a great holiday weekend.  Thankfully Mimi kept the kids at her house so I was able to rest and they didn't get sick.  Great weekend despite the not so great ending.
