A few pictures from our Independence Day Celebration

We had a wonderful and sort-of-quiet 4th of July celebration this year. Stan’s cousin Leona and her husband Rob came over to hang out with us in the afternoon and evening, and kids just loved spending time with them! Edward started out with reciting some history facts that he remembered about the Revolutionary War, the first Independence Day, the signing of the Declaration of Independence and some other stuff, that we’ve covered in our theme unit just a week prior. After that a game of Sorry was played and then everyone moved outside for some fun in the sun and for grilling of the dinner.

Rob and Leona took turns throwing the ball to Edward in this makeshift baseball game. He was all too happy to count his Grand Slams and Home Runs 😉

We had a very yummy dinner to celebrate the Independence Day, even though you can’t see it in this picture.

Rob and Leona needed to head out before 8 pm, so we decided to do some sparklers and fireworks, even though it wasn’t dark yet.

Connor’s first sparkler (last year he was too little for those).

Dropping the flames 😉

Boys were mesmerized by this fountain firework Rob and Leona brought with them.

Did you all have a fun-filled 4th of July?
