Mister Mister made it back home from working out-of-town just in time to spend the fourth with Lovey and I.
Our all American boy! ♥I made star-spangled, chocolate dipped pretzel sticks for snacking.
The boys picked out fireworks to set off.
The fireworks stand had an inflatable gorilla out front to attract business, the nice owner took some time to show Lovey how the gorilla “dances” by deflating it half way then inflating it again. It was cute and Lovey enjoyed it.
Our fireworks haul!
Last year Lovey didn’t want any part of the fireworks, saying that they were just too loud for him. So he and I watched from inside our house while Mister Mister set off a few. This year he was much more interested, especially with the sparklers.Our neighborhood has an annual BBQ and games followed by a fireworks show on the fourth so we headed that way with Lovey in the wagon. Afterwards, we went back home to set off our own fireworks. Our neighbors joined us with theirs too, adding to the fun and extending the light show in the sky. Once the fireworks were done and the last sparkler had sparkled, we cleaned up and made a Wendy’s run for frostys and floats to enjoy as we wound down together on the couch.
We had a great fourth, thankful for our freedom and the red, white & blue and all those who fight to protect us all, past, present & future.
…Always thankful to spend a day with the ones that I love. ♥
