4th of July Fun!

Whew!  What a busy day!  The 4th is an important day in our house and here's why:

1) Always been my favorite holiday
2) Some of the best memories with some of the best people happened on this day
a) lighting the Anthony Lake grass on fire with the Giesen clan
b) blowing up a mailbox with Jennifer Prouse
c) watching my dad light off the city fireworks at the lake
d) getting in to teenage trouble with Jennifer and Teri
e) awesome block parties with Krysten and Lisa
f) meeting my husband
g) watching Evin fall in love with the holiday too

This year I had the day off!  

Here's what we did: 

A'Merica Red-White and Blue Breakfast

Blue Eggs
Blue pancakes with white chocolate chips
Pancakes with strawberries and blueberries
Red milk
Fruit kabobs
Sausage and Bacon

Bike Wash Fun

Not quite finished but still fun!

Sidewalk chalk painting

1 cup cornstarch
1 cup water
food coloring

Fireworks with Evin

Karl learned what a "punk" was and Evin LOVED smoke bombs!

Evin's Glowstick Firework Show

It's a safe, fun, and cheap alternative.  Three boys at the park put on a 30 minute firework show by throwing glowsticks in to the air over and over and over again!  It was beautiful and funny and might have went on for hours!  Though impossible to photograph with an IPhone!
