The fireworks... the food... the patriotism.
It also has sentimental meaning to me, because that was actually Maddox's due date, 4 years ago.
...before he made other plans.
They firework show, this year, was on July 3rd...
Which coincided with the day I came down with a summer cold/ man voice/ ear pain/ sore throat.
My parents came over, as did Lance's dad.
We made steak and veggie kabobs and I made the these chicken and pineapple kbobs as well.
We had baked beans, rice, a salad...
and the easiest and yummiest peach cobbler known to man!
They didn't start the show until after 10:00 and we were able to sit at my friend, Heather's in-laws for a perfect view!
Maddox ended up crawling in the truck and watching from the quiet view...
but Beckham watched them up-close and personal, and loved every minute.
On the actual fourth, Lance and I took advantage of On The Border's 1/2 price appetizers and margaritas-- and then we watched a few mini-shows from our driveway, with the boys!
Beckham was in the kissing-est mood that night and I took full advantage of the love!
Yesterday was spent running errands-- trying to get ready for Maddox's 4th birthday party!
except a full belly of cafeteria food... and two sticky little boys!
and if we can get what we want for our car...
I may be back in the big-car-business soon!
