How we celebrated the 4th of July

Hello everybody! 
Hope you all had a great 4th of July and were able to celebrate somehow!

The boys and I had a pretty relaxing day full of puzzles, 
reading and playing outside.
The hubs however spent a portion of the day sanding his mud job in Zachary's new room! 
But that part is done and we are looking forward to doing the trim and hopefully
painting this coming weekend! 

Luckily during the afternoon he got in a little relaxing with us before we
fired up the BBQ for some dinner.
I am so obsessed with corn on the cob right now.
I always love it, but this pregnancy has brought out the 
corn lover in me and we are eating it every couple of days!

Since in our county we are not allowed to shoot off our own fireworks,
we have to go somewhere to watch them. 
I miss the days of setting off our own, but I don't mind going to watch
our city lights instead! 

 Last year Tyler was only 8 months old and he was crashed out
and missed the show- so I was excited to see what he was going to think!

 I actually **love** this picture of us, despite it being blurry!
I rarely get a decent picture of all four of us.

 Zachy Bug and Mama! 

 The show has started and they are interested! 

 I think Tyler likes it!

Tyler was too interested in the fireworks to get a picture with dad! 

We got stuck behind an accident of some sort and didn't get home until
after 11 pm, but it was a super great day! 

Happy 4th of July everyone! 
Home of the free because of the brave!

  1. So cute! You're little one is adorable!!! Both of your children look like their mamma! I love corn on the cob too! You will have to try this the next time:
    1. Melt stick of butter
    2. Tear back husks and remove silk
    3. Using a basting brush, brush corn with butter salt pepper to your liking
    4. Pull husks back over cob and cover with alum. foil (shiny side on inside-facing the corn)
    5. Grill for about 30-45 minutes.
    Lord have mercy, this will rock your socks off!
