A few pics from the fourth.

So we got up the fourth really excited about the day.  Why?

Well, to be honest, I had the day off.  I mean, the WHOLE day off. 

No jobs whatsoever, and if you know me that's a big deal since I have two part time jobs (soon to have three).

Don't get me wrong, I'm always happy to celebrate the birth of our nation.  I love our country and am proud to be an American.  (Yes, even crazy crack pot liberals like me love our country- laugh if you want) ;)

But I haven't had a non-work day in weeks. So excitement.

First we went to the parade.
Waiting for the parade.
Then I'm afraid it got too hot for us to stay with Evie.  I'm ok sweating, but my little babies better not.
Me sweating...
So we then headed off to get pizza.  It was yummy! 

Evie at the restaurant.
On our way home we got some fireworks, mainly because we didn't want to drive back into town late at night with two kids for the main fireworks.  So we got our own. 

The kids to a nap, I cleaned some and then got to read.  Can I tell you how ABSOLUTELY nice it is to just sit and read??  And not something that has pictures (i.e. kid books)?

I MISSED IT.  (and that's an understatement coming from the daughter of a librarian)

The book I read- Evolving in Monkey Town by Rachel Held Evans.  One of the best reads I have had in awhile.  I cannot recommend her book more.  It is fantastic.

After that dinner, which was a bit strange (but that's another post), we watched a little tv and then headed out for fireworks.
You can't see me in this picture, but I am right beside her.  I was totally nervous, but really didn't have to be.

It was fun!!  Except for the few times the fireworks accidently burst over our heads.  Yikes.  But no one got hurt, we were always safe...I was just a little shocked.  I've never shot off fireworks that large before, so it was a new one for me.  Of course Mark was in his element. After that it was bedtime, and I got to crochet!!!

One of the fountains, not a great picture...but they were really pretty.
