Happy Day After the 4th! Or is there such a thing? When kids go to bed two hours late it can make for an interesting July 5th. But so far so good- fingers crossed!
We started our 4th by watching Eric in a 3 on 3 basketball tournament. His team won it all- in fact they won every single game (one was 20-2). But as one of the other players said- Eric is one of those guys that if you are on the opposing team and you see him come onto the court you kind of say oh shoot. I'll admit it is quite fun to be married to the guy that makes the other players know they are out of luck.
Then we had some good old fashioned burgers at Fudruckers for lunch. And have you seen how Alex eats her cookies.
Yep that little pile of broken up pieces on her napkin. Strange child.
The afternoon was pretty chill with a nap for Ryder and games on the iPads.
Then at dinner our big lunch made us not really hungry for the pork chops we had marinating- so instead we had hard boiled eggs and muffins for dinner- how unAmerican!
Then it was time to head to the fireworks. Our city has a big firework display that they light off from the stadium; but we join a ton of the town and sit along the street or in the Home Depot parking lot where the view of the fireworks is great (and free).
We kept the kids happy with lots of snacks and then it was finally time.
Ryder was sitting on my lap staring at the fireworks-he hardly seemed to be moving. I asked him if he liked the fireworks- at which point he turned around and clung to me.
And that- or with Eric holding him is how he watched the rest of the fireworks. Guess he wasn't a fan.
Overall it was a wonderful holiday. How did you celebrate the 4th?
