Since the Fourth of July this year falls on a weekday, the celebrations started early around here and on Friday the hubs and I decided to venture out and participate in the fun.
We headed down to the fireworks and claimed our spots on the hill where we got one of the best views of the show. Since I'm usually the one behind the camera, pictures of Big Man and I together are few and far between now a days, so I'm glad my sister captured this one of us.
Excuse my three chins and just focus on my pretty new floral Vera Wangs from Kohl's. These are usually not my style but I got to admit, I am completely digging them.
Besides my sunglasses, here are some other cuties that were there...
My three babes.
With the kiddos, parents, and everyone's jobs, it's hard getting everyone together so it was a blessing to be able to spend time with both my sisters, my two brother in laws, and my three babes. How can you not love those faces?!?
While we waited on our blankets in the grass, BS'ing and taking pictures...we indulged in some Italian Ice.
It's been crazy hot here lately and Friday night was no exception.
A icy cold treat definitely hit the spot.
The sun started to set though and that's when the real show started....
There's just something about those brights flashes lighting up the sky and the echoing booms that scream summertime to me. I don't think that I will ever tire of fireworks.
And the best part of any fireworks display....
Such a fun night!!!
Have you seen any fireworks yet?!?
Are you a fan of them?!?
