SOOC Satur... uh, Sunday :)

We had a neighborhood get-together tonight for the 4th of July, including fireworks. We do that for most holidays (New Year's, Memorial Day, etc.) and everyone brings food to share (we usually bring desserts and today dh also made salsa to bring, yum!). It seems like every time there are more and more people who come, and there was a pretty big group for today's festivities, which was nice to see.

Cuddlebug and Bearhug even joined in - they played with sparklers (after some initial trepidation) and watched part of the fireworks. They ended up deciding to watch from inside the house due to the noise, but they had a good time. Bitty was happy to join the fun before the fireworks, when we were just walking up and down the street (keeping an eye on his brothers as they rode their bikes). He wanted no part of the sparklers though, and was even less excited about the noisy fireworks so he went inside when those got started. He was tired though, so once he fell asleep he slept through the rest of the fireworks with no problem (yay!).

I suppose our equivalent to your 4th of July is our Australia Day on the 26th of January! I love fireworks.
Glad you had a wonderful day.

The fireworks photos are so cool! The bad thing about fireworks is definitely the noise, and the smoke too!
That's nice that your Cuddlebug and Bearhug were able to participate! They must've had an awesome time playing with the sparklers and watching the fireworks. Wish you had some pics of them! :)
