So, this is embarassingly late...but I thought I should still do it. We had such a fun 4th of July. Asher and Annie and I went over to Ben and Whit's with Doug and Jackie, and a couple that I met there, the Allers who were great fun! We had a bring your own meet BBQ and then some delicious desserts provided by yours truly and Sara Aller (who by the way, I could totally empathize with as she was like 8 months prego in the middle of the summer. I do not miss that!!) I made the trifle (which you can't really tell is a trifle, but it was yu-mmy!!) Sarah made the cheesecake which was also delicious! I am not ashamed to say that I had full helpings of both!
Asher kept pretty busy by playing with this ball tossing toy for like 30 minutes. It was awesome. I have to say, that he was not the only one that was amused by this toy, and I am not talking about the other children that were in attendence!
I really wanted Asher to see some fireworks for his first ever 4th of July. This was his reaction to the fireworks...
...was it worth his being off his sleeping schedule for a whole week after that (due to keeping him up so late) I'm not so sure. But I have to say that he looks so stinkin' cute in his tight pjs, sitting in the monkey chair.
After all the kiddies went to bed, we continued on with our own "parking lot of fire" with the fireworks that the boys bought. We had some near explosions when they tried to set off several flowers at the same time. I think they intercepted and it did not go well. But we had a fun time. We could even see the huge fireworks show from the Stadium of Fire pretty well, so we watched that, which I was not thoroughly impressed with. Oh well!! All in all, is was a pretty successful evening full of food, laughs and fire. I don't think it gets much better than that!
