We celebrated the 4th of July nice and quiet with our kids at home and watching a movie. We really tend to take it easy and just enjoy being together :).
However, for the 3rd of July we got together with Nathan and Tiffany and kids to celebrate early!! We had a Nerf war around our house, grilled up yummy buffalo burgers, filled up water balloons and had a water fight, and enjoyed fireworks. It was fun to celebrate together! I didn't get any pictures of the Nerf war because I was participating ;). It was hard to get photos of the water balloon fight, but I tried.

We ended up at the local elementary school to watch the fireworks. Uncle Nathan was nice enough to let the kids sit on his van to see the show. They loved watching together!
Here are just a few pictures of the show.
At the end there was an explosion... I think that happened last year too. It is always kind of scary when the show ends like that... fireworks are pretty dangerous.
We are grateful for this wonderful country that we enjoy and the freedoms we have! Happy Independence Day!
