Boom Boom Pow!

Not only is that the girls favorite song of the moment but it seemed fitting as a title for our 4th of July post. We actually went to Walmart today - I know we are NUTS! We needed water and I can only fit a case at a time when I go and it is tough with all 3 so Matt helped a mama out today and we went as a family. It really stunk but that is ok b/c we got to hang out all day together and we made the most of it. We put the girls down for a nap after grilling out some hotdogs b/c you have to grill on the 4th don't you? While they were sleeping Matt and I filled water balloons and I made their favorite oatmeal cookies. When they woke up we had to run 1 errand and then let them put their suits on to go swimming.

"Yes, water balloons!"

"I squirted myself in the eye - silly"

Quick break

and finally the girls and I - impossible to get everyone looking and I know this b/c this was the only decent shot out of the 40 my husband took :)

After playing we set off our driveway display of fireworks. Seriously, I thought it might be a little lame but I forgot how cool the smaller fireworks are for kids. They LOVED the snakes that grew and the smoke bombs that Matt made into "rainbows" were a total hit! Now they are sleeping after another long day of fun :) No sushi tonight but we are watching the race and listening to the war going on between our neighbors - who has the loudest and biggest fireworks :) If I had some more ambition and wasn't so worn out I would get out there and watch but I am ready to put 4th of July 2009 in the books and head to bed.

Nice shots especially the one of you and the kids. Looks like a fun day.
