belated 4th of July post

We started off our 4th of July weekend with a Firecracker 5K Race. My first 5K finished in 29:47.

Then we went to Nebraska City to watch fireworks. We hadn't been to this show in 4 years. Last time was the day before my Moose was born. Here he is playing with our best friends' Kurt & Laura's nephews, foster son, and cousin. I was so proud of him sharing his cars & not arguing about it.

My little sweaty head!

Squirt, once again, didn't care for the fireworks. This year the noise seemed to bother him as much as the brightness of it all. He didn't cry, though, just cuddled (sweatily) in his daddy's arms. He warmed up about halfway through the show and at least put up with it. 

On the 4th itself, we went to a local Kansas town to watch their fireworks. We went there last year and enjoyed them - they put on one heck of a show. We did stop at their awesome playground (where we had the boys' friend birthday party) to play before the show. It was a zoo and hard to keep track of my kids, so this was the only shot I got.

Mr. Squinty watching the show.

Again, this is where he spent most of the night. Big A ate up all that cuddle time!

My Moose wanted to sit with me to watch these fireworks. I ate up this cuddle time!

Squirt decided he wanted to go "night-night" on the blanket. See him on the left under his blanket.

My July babies!
