7/4/11 - Independence Day

Rich and I hemmed and hawed for quite a while today trying to decide where we would go to celebrate the 4th.  Last year the place we went was huge....tons of people, great fireworks...but just a touch crazy.  This year we decided to try for something we thought might be a little less populated.  We bit the bullet and tried for a tickets only place that didn't allow smoking or alcohol.  We figured that might keep the population down to a less insane level.  We were so right!  We had a blast!

There were so many great ways to keep Nathan occupied.  Big slides, bouncy house, balloon artist, dance competitions, Frisbees to play with.  Food, cotton candy, ice cream, snow cones.  We had all we needed for a great celebration. 

Didn't take too many photos...but here are a few.

Nathan dancing to the band.

Compilation photo of the best of my firework shots.  Didn't bring a tripod because I'm awfully lazy lately...so these were hand held.

  1. Loved them all -- helped me share your fun evening. Loved the balloon animal, the boys looking at the stars -- and the fireworks were way cool!
