Sydney was still a little scared of fireworks, but loved sparklers.
This year we did the Fourth of July quietly. In the past, we've had large parties or attended larger parties. Not this year. We just took it easy. We've had such a busy summer, and it was nice to have a quiet, laid back day. A simple barbecue, a few last minute friends, and a few homemade four-year-old decorations. I'm pretty sure this is how Fourth of July celebrations are meant to be.
We all really like the fountains.
And even our furry guest for the weekend, Kip, joined us. He watched the show from Lindsay's lap. (Grizzly was too busy "protecting" us from the fireworks.)
