After all that playing we were tired. We rested for a little while and then it was time to party. Jeremy turned 40 this year. He requested cashew chicken pasta salad with corn on the cob for dinner and a huckleberry ice cream cake. Done and done.
The kids don't care how old Daddy is, they just want cake!
After cake it was time for fireworks. We still had a lot of daylight so this year we used up some poppers and party crackers. I think the kids actually liked this better since they could do them on their own. And we didn't have to stay up past 11 pm to wait until it was dark enough to light fireworks.
It was truly a happy 4th of July.
To make the night even better, Annie lost another tooth!
We are so thankful we could spend the holiday and Daddy's birthday with family.
