Happy Fourth of July

The 4th of July is always a "blast" at the beach house. There are fireworks being set up on the beach all day which makes for fun times watching the workers haul them down. Plus, this year we were able to go to Fort Macon for the live canon firing- mommy just loves that :) Well, the kids loved it anyhow. There was a ship passing by on the ocean and I thought it would be funny if Harbin made it look like he was holding the ship in his hand- as you can see, he was less than impressed with my idea. The Fort was hot, so we made our way around sightseeing and then headed back to the beach house to play until the fireworks that evening. The kids had a great time with all their cousins dressing up in their Patriotic clothes and necklaces and running around chanting "USA USA". They got to hop up into the firetruck for a quick look around and then we all headed up to the porch to wait for the big show! This year all of my kids LOVED the fireworks and I was the only one holding my ears. We didn't have as much excitement as last year with all the fires in the sand dunes, but the fireworks were spectacular and you can see from some of the pics that they literally LIT up the sky. Lydia busted her glow stick (she was biting on it) and she came over to show me how she was glowing. I guess that's kind of like being a super hero or something. I hope everyone else had a fun 4th too! We missed Daddy a lot on this holiday that he loves so much and we're hoping that he got to celebrate some too! The mom.
