God Bless America

I was really looking forward to the Fourth of July this year for a few reasons... it was Sam's first Fourth, Dave had the day off believe it or not, and we had a super fun place to gather to watch the fireworks!!!

But before I could do anything, I just had to get a picture of Sam in the same shirt that Jack wore on his first Fourth! Jack was 2.5 months on 7-4-07, Sam was 4.5 months on 7-4-10... and as you can see the shirt was much bigger on my little peanut Sam, even though he was 2 months older!

The Fourth of July just happened to fall on a Sunday this year, so we didn't have a lot of time in between church (we meet at 5:30pm) and the start of fireworks to eat dinner. So, McDonald's it was! After church we popped through the drive-thru and headed over to meet our friends at a super-secret rendezvous point to eat it as we awaited the start of the fireworks!

It was cold, so we had to bundle up!

To occupy the kids while we waited for the fireworks, I brought along Jack's Stomp Rockets! I put my dad in charge so that I could take pictures... the kids had such a fun time!

And then we sat back in awe as the fireworks started! Of course the kids loved that, too!

I taught Jack "God Bless America" but he refused to sing it when I pulled out my video camera. Typical three-year-old! After the fireworks, we headed home. On the way home we went over a railroad crossing... the next day Jack talked about that more than the fireworks! Have I ever mentioned that he's obsessed with trains? Yes? Good. Cause he really is obsessed with them!
