Happy 4th of July!

We had a fun 4th of July that started out with sleeping in and some Red, White and Blueberry waffles made by my wonderful husband. Mike usually makes us waffles every Saturday and Sunday, so any additional days we get them is a treat! My parents got him this wafflemaker that rotates for his birthday this year and he loves it. I always have Mike mine with the Costco Triple Berry Mix in my batter and then for my topping too. Delicious! The 4th of July is one of Mike's favorite holidays. We are very grateful for this country that we live in and the freedoms that we enjoy.

Of course I had to sneak in time for a Jasper holiday photo shoot.

Mike watched a real patriotic movie, Armageddon, this afternoon while he folded the clothes. No 4th of July is complete without a Bruce Willis action movie and a lot of explosions.

We mostly just hung out and enjoyed some time together. Mike has been working REALLY hard, so he was very ready for a day of R & R.

My friends told me that the neighborhoods in our area have competitions between the streets to see who has the biggest and best illegal fireworks. Wow, do they ever!

We put Jasper to bed at 7:30 PM. I can not believe that he slept through all of the noise. Way to go J-Man!I took a camp chair out back to see what I could see. It was amazing. It was the same caliber as a fireworks display for a small city. I am including a few photos I snapped so you can see how close the fireworks were to our house. We did have a large megabanger rocket fly through the air and our backyard. That was a little over the top for me.
