Happy Birthday, America!
Happy Independence Day, everyone! As you can see, we dressed for the occasion. All in all, it was a pretty laid-back day - church, a little afternoon rest. Brian did grill some hot dogs and brats, but we stayed home and just had a nice family day.
We let Xander stay up late tonight to watch fireworks on TV (A Capitol Fourth), and got the added bonus of being able to see some live fireworks out of our family room window. They were just backyard fireworks, but it was still neat to watch them all snuggled on the couch together in the dark. Xander loved it; we conducted and played pretend drums and trombones to the music, and we made a game out of who could see the fireworks outside first. And since they were far away, there were no loud noises to scare him - just little popping sounds. Or, as Xander said, "I like the fireworks. They have pretty colors and pop like popcorns."
