July 4th Celebrations

We celebrated July 4th over two days but I'm just going to do it all in one lost post.  Luckily our town's freedom festival was on July 3rd before the rain started (and lasted for DAYS).  Our church volunteered to help with the inflatable section so Josh was busy all day and the kids and I just went to play!

While waiting on the fireworks to start the kids ran around and played with friends for almost two hours in a huge field by our middle school.  They loved it!

when it finally got dark we brought out the glow sticks!!

ready for fireworks

Happy 4th of July!!

It rained ALL DAY so when there was a small break in the rain we took advantage and did some fireworks

Our friends came to celebrate with us.  Sweet Micah had no idea why there were so many loud noises and lots of smoke.  My kids loved watching Micah as much as the fireworks

more sparklers!!

We ended the night catching lightning bugs.  They did not stay in the jar long though.  Sweet Isabel looked up at us with tears in her eyes and said, "but if we put them in the jar, how will they go and play with their friends?"  We let them out.
