Wordless Wednesday: July 4th Craziness

We got to spend the day with extended family from Chicago. Unfortunately, all the activities they used to have in the small town we were staying didn’t have a thing for the kids to do other than the playground. It was such a disappointment.

On the lake for the boat parade.IMG_7321 Then the pirate ship attacked…everyone. It was a free for all, but we’ll be prepared next year!IMG_7348 Waiting for the fireworks to start.IMG_7387

The fireworks lasted about 15 minutes. So fast for the 3 hours we were in town! Next year we wait until dusk.IMG_7431

Boat parade sounds like fun. Sorry things didn't go so well for you. I didn't even time our fireworks but I think they lasted longer than 15 minutes. They do an awesome job. Unfortunately after a few pictures I was out of memory card space.

I love watching fireworks . . . unfortunately this year I missed them because of a friend's kid who had her own fireworks. Don't ask.

Looks like a nice celebration. It is always better when the kids have things to do. Boat parade looks like it was fun.

That is a long wait for the fireworks! We missed them b/c my near-4 year old refused to nap and was zonked in bed by 730pm. Happy belated 4th of July!

So glad you had such a terrific time. Love the pics, as always!

Emilie said...

Sorry they didn't have anything for the kids to do. We skipped fireworks this year as everyone was already exhausted from the day. Glad you still enjoyed your 4th!
