4th of July

I thought the 4th of July was a good place to go next in the story of our road trip. We went to my uncle's house for a lunch cook out. The girls had fun playing with all of the 'new' toys and playing in the sand (they used to have a volleyball pit but now it's just a gigantic sand box).

We also set off smoke bombs and those fire cracker things that you throw. We did a few at a time so we literally did it all day. Oh, and sparklers too. Here's some pictures of the girls setting off their 'fireworks'. This first one is them watching the smoke bombs. They would clap and cheer for the different colors.
Here's Emily jumping on the snap things that you're supposed to throw. She thought it was way more fun to put them on the ground and jump on them.

And finally, this is how Mara spent most of the day. She really liked all of the fireworks last year but this year she said they were too loud. Notice she's smiling though!
Oh, and we also watched the 'big fireworks' that night. We had a great view from my cousin's screened in porch. The girls danced and cheered for all of the colors and decided that the red ones were their favorites. Becca liked watching her silly big sisters better than watching the fireworks!

We had a great 4th of July which could only have been better if Daddy were there with us! More to come....
