our town takes fourth of july very seriously.
there are 5 firework stands.
one has a giant gorilla (that bentley waved to every time we drove past. we even went & saw him a few times. and i'm talking GIANT blow up gorilla. probably 20+ feet tall.)
bentley was a bit skeptical of fire works at first, but quickly got used to them & even enjoyed them!
|we went on a jammie walk down to the firework stand on the 2nd.|
|bentley also loved the big rocket! he will miss seeing them when we drive through town.|
|sparklers to ease bentley into the firework show!|
|and smoke bombs! he loved it!|
|day before the 4th at mahoney state park|
|red, white, & buns.|
|firework show from werner park. viewed from the back of our pickup on a gravel road a mile or so away.|
|give me a holiday, & i will give you a banner!|
|the boys went firework shopping. bentley picked up this choo-choo!|
|it was a little louder than he bargained for.|
|baby jed celebrating|
|picking wild flowers|
|potty training again.|
and today, we had a Burke birthday celebration for bentley!
he loved spending time at the lake & with his family.
he was so excited to bring his elmo cake to share!
i went to a moms night out at CBC & one of the ladies at my table won a cake as a door prize.
she said she would never use the gift certificate, so she gave it to me to use for bentley!
|can you see something that is wrong in this picture?|
|a very normal sight. dad grilling.|
|he would have stayed & jumped off the curb all night!|
