Anyway, the weekend started off with the City of York's firework show on Thursday night. We have started going to it every year, and Brooks really enjoys it since we watch them from the fairground parking lot, plenty of distance away from the loud booms. Again this year, Cody had Katy's birthday party prior to the show, which was fun. The kids could run around and play in the parking lot, eat cupcakes, popcorn, and candy, and anticipate the exciting firework show to end the evening. I didn't get many pictures that night because it is just too much hassle to haul around our nice camera while I'm holding Barrett all the time, but I snapped this one quick with my phone of Keely eating her cupcake :)
On the actual 4th of July, we went to my parents' house for the day. We played outside most of the day and enjoyed the beautiful weather. I love it when we have 'cooler' weather for the 4th...it was only in the low 80s all day! This is the first year we have bought snappers for the kids. Keely and Brooks were a little unsure at first with the loud 'snap', but after they discovered how fun it was to throw and step on them, both kids loved them! Brooks even shed a few tears when they were all gone.
