Madison, Alex & I had a fun 4th of July up in the cul-de-sac with a big block party! The weather was so-so, but at least it didn’t rain…much! There was delicious food, lots of people and fireworks! We had a great time! Be warned….there is a TON of pictures in this post! If you are afraid of oober-cuteness, you’ll want to leave this post right away :)
Around 9pm, the Sparklers (or magic wands as Madison called them), were pulled out. You wouldn’t believe the amount of sparklers they had! Every kid got at least a box of their own, and we’re talking 30 kids! Even the babies (can’t call them that much longer) got to have a go at them! They all loved it, at first weren’t sure what they were supposed to do, but quickly caught on!
Once the sparklers were all gone, it was time for the real show! Who doesn’t love fireworks (well amazingly enough, a lot of people don’t…I don’t quite get why, but they don’t! Something about them being dangerous??). We all sat back and enjoyed the show!
Did I fail to mention how cold it was??! It was freeeeeezing! Even wrapped up in sweatshirts, blankets, coats and near a fire, we were cold! Oh well, that’s the 4th of July in Seattle!
Now that the 4th is over, it’s time for summer! It finally made it’s debut today! Supposed to be near 90 all week, yippppeee! That means pool days are ahead, and I for one cannot wait! Thank heavens for SUMMER!!
