4th of July!

We had a lovely time at our town's 4th of July event.

Liza was quite pleased to learn that popcorn can be coated in fake butter and salt.

This girl is a popcorn fiend at home and she was absolutely zombie-like in her goal of eating as much of this salty/buttery popcorn as possible.

Pretty sure Liza will gladly vote this woman in to office.

Henry did his typical 'watch but not jump' with the bounce houses.
He also enjoyed standing in line and chickening out when it got to be his turn but Taylor nipped that in the bud after several rotations through the line.  

He also realized Taylor had not very well hidden Tic-Tacs in his pocket.
For whatever reason, Taylor made him close his eyes to get one.

Liza is to buttery popcorn as Henry is to Tic-Tacs.

We left the bounce house area, smoothed out our quilt and sat down to eat some fruit.

Real food.  Thank goodness.

Right around this time we found our friends....
and Henry found Tripp's "choochoo" umbrella.

Tripp had his umbrella with him for a very good reason.  We had rain showers earlier that afternoon and the sky looked quite gloomy.  My heart started frantically beating at the first 'boom' of thunder in the background and I grabbed our things and ran to the car at the 3rd raindrop on my arm.  

Have I mentioned I am absolutely terrified of lightening?

I am.  

Needless to say, we didn't stick around for the fireworks.

To be continued.....

Looks like so much fun! I rarely feel jealousy but I am because of your great and wonderful day! We had a terrible one this year. :(

My, oh my, has that little one of yours grown!
