July 4th Festivities!

Today was a good day. I was only mildly dizzy, and other than my 4 hour nap in the middle of the day, I functioned quite well. We did our "fireworks" around 7:00, right before bedtime for the kids. Jaymes loved the sparklers, which is awesome because this is the first year he has shown any actual interest. He even held them, and waved them around. Sierra held one, with daddy's help, but she wasn't really into it. She was a lot more excited about trying to take me down with the stroller and riding Echo. Got some great video and photos!

At first Jaymes wasn't quite sure about the sparklers...



Sierra hung out with her dog...



And rode her trusty steed, Bouncer...



And then tried to kill me with the stroller...



Jaymes went and investigated a bigger firework after it had died and cooled down, and he was perplexed. Then he got very excited.



Then he got into the sparklers!



Then Sierra tried it out...



All in all, a very nice 4th. Hope you all had a good time!

Aww squishy your kids are so adorable!

I just went to check on my "kids" (read: ponies) and they are so chill about the fireworks! Even though they are going on 10 feet from the end of their pasture...

Aww, thanks! Yeah my horse ended up being in a stall for nothing, the rain killed everyone's firework plans I guess. I'm glad, actually.
