4th!...with a few gliches in the plan

Hope everyone had a happy and safe 4th!

Ours wasn't what we had planned, but all in all it turned out good.

Started out smaller than we have had in years, with friends not able to make it this year as they have in the past. My dad cooked tons of food, which was VERY good. The kids did smoke bombs with hubby in the daylight and loved those. Hubby and the kids went to see Transformers. They loved it but after that is when the plans went a little more haywired. Hubby's dad called as they were coming home from the movie and he needed to go to the hospital, he has been sick for a couple of weeks but apparently was having some new issues as well. So hubby took him, I went and picked the kids up from the hospital. Came home, they were worried about grandpa but after learning he was going to be okay, the next concern was fireworks. We had bought some to do, but hubby was not going to be home in time to do them.

I have never lit a firework in my life and absolutely hated the thought of it. I like to watch them. So thanks for great neighbors. I shanghied a neighbor and he said he would come over and light them. Other neighbors put on a great show so the kids and I did sparklers (which took me forever to light and I still never got that stinkin punk to light) but finally the neighbor and his wife came over. He did the firework lighting and the kids and I enjoyed. Then inside for showers and bed. Hubby finally made it home, Britt had taken lots of pics for him. So not the 4th we had planned but all in all worked out well.

I do not like lighting off fireworks other than smoke bombs myself either...

FIL is doing better. His health is not very good, and it is worrying us, he also does NOT take care of himself which definetly does not help the situation.

lol doesn't braden look all comfy watching the works. I think those smokers are such a waste of money and sparklers since Kaylie got burned by one that one year I haven't let her hold one.
