The 4th of July

We wanted to spend a pretty low key 4th of July this year so we decided we wouldn't go to any fireworks shows. 
I asked my parents if they had any plans and if they wanted to get together for lunch. They did want to and asked if we would come to their house for a barbecue. 
So we drove there in the early afternoon. 
We had a really fun barbecue. 

My mom even made us red, white, and blue ice cream sundaes. 

After that we drove home and we went out back to do poppers and sparklers. 

 A few moments after Maddy was holding out that sparkler, she forgot that she isn't supposed to touch the burning edge when it is done burning. She grabbed it right by that end as she put it down on the table and burnt her hand resulting in lots of pain and a big blister. I felt so bad for her.

Since we didn't plan on going to any fireworks shows we just hung out at home all evening and let the girls start watching a film in the playroom. But then there began to be booms everywhere and we went to the windows. There were people doing huge fireworks shows all over our neighborhood. 
We could also see a few of the big professional ones from afar. 
So we went outside and watched for a while. The girls loved it!
