4th of July Festivities

We had a fabulous 4th of July! We got to sleep in together (which hasn't happened in forever!) and it was just wonderful to kinda lounge around the house and take it easy for a morning. We went over to the In-laws for dinner and it was yummy! I have to give kuddos to my Mother-in-law who is just absolutely fabulous! She is everything I hope to one day be!!
We went to the church grassy area for fireworks and had a blast! Matt and his brother David played catch, Amber and Becky were running around, everyone was having a good time. Molly and I sat on the blankets and laughed and laughed. I have to say, I don't think the fireworks in Colorado are as wonderful as they are in Idaho (maybe I'm biased) but anything sparkly is good in my book! Below are some photos of our fun day.

Matt and his brother David...they are sooo goofy when they get together!This is Molly and I on the blanket waiting for fireworks to start. I love this little girl sooo much! She gives me so much inspiration and makes me smile!
Matt and David were playing catch. I love the look on Matt's face as he is concentrating soo hard and catching the ball!
FIREWORKS!!!
This is Steve, Matt's dad with his propane torch. It cracks me up that every year they light fireworks with this torch instead of the traditional matches. What makes me laugh even more is all of the "big boys" want a chance with the torch. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't!
This is Matt and the kids in the street lighting off fireworks. I get such a kick out of watching them!

So fun! We used to light our fireworks with the big torch too! We can't even have fireworks here, it's such a bummer. Too much fire hazard.

I have to say Brandy, that you look INCREDIBLE!!!!! I think a swim suit shot will be in order by the end of the summer! :-) That propane torch is a HOOT, I know Cory would be one of those "big boys" in line. Also, he gets SO dorky around his brothers too, must be a guy brother bonding thing....
