4th of July

For the 3rd year, we spent the 4th with the Semi-Homemades. We skipped the parade (see last year's post for why we didn't go) this year and headed over after naps.

The girls colored (since it was over 100 outside!) and G-man tried to get in on the action.

Mr. Semi-Homemade grilled burgers, brats, and hot dogs for the kiddos. We paired it with grilled corn on the cob, LC's homemade mac and cheese, fresh berries, guacamole, and Pioneer Woman's sheet cake! Delicious!!
For our after dinner entertainment, the girls (and LC) danced to their favorite song... Lady Gaga's "Poker Face".

The guys set up Rock Band.... sang several songs... and decided it wasn't as fun when you had 3 little ones trying to play too!

Once Rock Band was put away, we headed to the fireworks. They had several hot air balloons burning off excess gas and P was none too pleased with the loud noise. She laid on the blanket like this or in my lap until the balloons had been put up!

I think she got her second wind.... R and P ran circles around us until the fireworks started.

It was all fun and games until the booms started....

but after awhile, she actually watched the gorgeous fireworks!
