Here are some pics from the weekend of the 4th. We had big plans but didn't end up doing much since Derek got food poisoning. He was sick on the 4th, 5th, and 6th...it was not pretty! I don't think I've ever seen someone throw up quite so violently. Ew.
I ended up parking the kids in the stroller in the driveway and lighting off fireworks myself! I've actually never done that before so it was interesting. I guess I consider that "a man's job"? Well anyway, I manned up and made sure Rowan got to clap and scream with joy on the 4th...even if my fireworks display sadly consisted of sparklers, smoke bombs, and a few other weak attempts.
We did manage to make it to the beach the day before however. It was so fun and soooo hot! We wanted to make sure we went though for Rowan's sake. It was her 1st day playing at the beach and boy did she have fun. She was fearless when it came to the water so we really had to keep an eye on her. She had no problem just wandering off from our little beach setup and heading down to the water by herself!
Confused by the fireworks I think?
