Happy 4th of July!

A day late I know. But I thought I would make up for it by including pictures of our 4th celebrations. Andrew, Maggie, Molly, and I biked over to our friends Matt and Vanessa's where we were joined by Billy, Anna, and Rob. We had a wonderful BBQ, croquet game, and blizzards. (Matt and Vanessa live right by a Dairy Queen!)
Andrew enjoying his bratwurst (after he had a steak).....
Molly telling a story....
Andrew playing croquet.....
Billy, Maggie, and Andrew playing......
Rob cheering them on from his recliner.....

We then headed over to Kira's where Luke and Brian joined us to watch fireworks over the bay. Kira was kind enough to let us watch from her house, she has an awesome view of the bay! The view from Kira's backyard.....
A pretty good show over Bellingham Bay.
This is how Andrew occupies himself during the show....


We also lit off a few small firecrackers ourselves (what is the difference between a firecracker and a firework? I keep getting confused!)
Maggie with her first sparkler. She is from Chicago and firecrackers are illegal in Illinois. We had to get some small stuff she so she could say she lit firecrackers!
Anna demonstrating....
Vanessa and Matt....
Roman candles off the back deck...

Sorry I didn't get pictures of everyone, I wasn't being very systematic with my pictures taking! Hope you all had a happy 4th!
