4th ofJuly, Fireworks Edition

One year ago we took the kids to see their first professional fireworks display. You can read about it here. They were not sure what to expect in the beginning, but ended up really liking it. Well this year when it came time for the 4th they were all about seeing the fireworks. Being new to Oklahoma we asked around, "where were the best fireworks?" Turns out the best show was right here in Edmond on the UCO campus just a few miles from the house. And they did NOT disappoint. They were spectacular!!!

We had to get there a couple of hours before the show began to secure a good viewing spot. We packed a cooler with drinks, a bag with snacks and a few footballs to help entertain the kiddos and we were off.

Tyson and Paul threw the football back and forth for a while.

And of course Emmy did not want to be left out of that fun......

Paul gave her a few tips and she held her own.

Nice form Em!

Meanwhile Sam and I felt it was important to stay hydrated with our Malibu/pineapple orange juice concoction and take pictures of Paul and the kids.

It was almost time and they were beginning to get a little restless.
See what I mean?

Happy 4th of July!!!! Already looking forward to next year!!!
