4th of July Celebrations!

On Friday we had our first celebration. We went over to the Ashton's and roasted some hot dogs in their fun new fire pit. The cousins had such a great time together.

After we ate, the girls made super cute hair flowers, and the boys ran around being boys.


Once it was dark, the fireworks show began. They had a big turnout from all their friends and neighbors. There was yummy food and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.



T and Josh got to help light some of the fireworks, which they thought was pretty darn cool!


After the "Ashton Stadium of Fire" was over, the kids had some fun with sparklers. J got burnt on the ear, which wasn't too fun. But other than that the night was a huge success!


Some more sparkler fun!


Then, Saturday we drove to Oregon and made it there in time for another fireworks show!
Once again there were lots of people there and there was lots of fun to be had!
Tonight we let the kids do more sparklers, since today is the actual 4th of July!
