Happy Fourth of July!
This is how I found Monkey and Hannah this morning. Isn't it adorable!! :)
We stayed home this year, and just relaxed. We bought a new bbq at Walmart and came home to grill and set off small fireworks in the backyard. Fireworks are illegal in our city, but in some nearby cities they are legal. Everyone here does them anyway, but we only do small ones. Our neighbors put on quite the show for us so it is okay. :)
While The Hubs was bbq'ing, I cleaned out the swingset. Monkey hasn't played on it in a while and it was covered in spider webs and just dirty. Peanut's swing was filthy. After it was cleaned off (and numerous black widows were killed! Yikes) the kids had a blast on it. :) I know it looks sad in the pictures, but I am going to get some paint this week and fix it up.
My sister and her husband came over also. The adults watched Shutter Island, which was a great movie! I thought it was going to be totally different than it was, and WOW it was good!
Peanut was asleep and in bed before we started the fireworks, she doesn't like loud noises at all. I hope you all had a good Fourth!
