hot dogs, sparklers and facepainting, oh my!

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July. I know we did. We went to Silver Park and watched their gorgeous fireworks display with my parents and sisters. It's beginning to be a tradition for us. This is our 3rd year and we just love it. We go in the afternoon and hang out all day playing games and talking and all the fun stuff they have there is really cool. Here are some of my pics from the day, unfortunately my camera batteries died so I couldn't get any pics of the actual fireworks. But you can just take my word for it, they were great.

I don't know if you will believe it, but he slept through the fireworks!
The girls waiting for "Gam" and "Gampy". It was actually kind of chilly and windy the whole day, then it cleared up at about 8:30.




The 26-years-apart twins lol.



Eating...the best part of any holiday ;-)



Yes, we did give our 2 and 4 yr olds sparklers....ok, WE didn't, my parents did.



They were so good with them. I couldn't believe how careful they were being to not touch the hot part to anything. And Maria was obviously mesmerized.



They got butterflies painted on their cheeks. They were really patient and never moved while they were painting them. The girls doing it even said "I can't believe how still they are being". Maria wasn't quite sure how to show hers off though.
