This year we went to a golf course near Michelle and Stel's for a potluck dinner and fireworks display.
When we first got there a storm was brewing, pretty normal for Colorado summer afternoons. So we hunkered down under the hatch of the car.
About 10 minutes later we were huddled in our cars because the wind got pretty fierce. An hour after that we were enjoying the fun!
Mia did her first sparkler. She thought it was a blast. I was petrified of them at her age.
The fireworks show was really close and really good. The whole night reminded me of when I was a kid and when our older kids were little. The Fourth of July was always a barbecue, tons of kids, and fireworks!
