I broke out the paint while we were waiting for Joe to get home from work today, and we had a good time getting patriotic, haha! Reese ended up with stars on her cheeks, a flag on one arm and a firework on the other. Easton wanted an eagle, but I finally talked him into a flag and firework. I’m pretty sure mine would have looked more like a turkey!
There was a rumor going around a few weeks ago that they weren’t going to have them this year because of the cost, but I guess someone donated the fireworks this year….YAY! I hate the thought of driving to Idaho Falls on the 4th. It’s a complete madhouse and takes hours to get out of there with all of the traffic. I love that we can watch the fireworks in town and be home 5 minutes after they’re over 🙂
Reese has been asking about the 4th of July for about 5 months now and I’m pretty sure it’s her favorite, or at least it’s a close tie with Christmas. She’s been counting down the days all week until it was the day for the fireworks!
