Since July 4th fell on a Sunday this year, it was observed by some businesses on July 5th, which is today. So, Brian was home with us, and we did a few fun things together!

The kids in their pool today.

Brian and Silas at the park, with the fire we built!

The kids and I at our little picnic area. We were making smores. Brianna liked licking the marshmallows.

Brianna is walking all the time now!

Brian and I!

We were going to see some fireworks in the evening, and we went, and there were quite a few other people there, but the date was wrong on the website we all saw it on, and there were no fireworks!

We had an awesome day, though! Looking forward to many more fun summer adventures!

    Sorry to my little buddy that we didn’t get to go to the fireworks. I’m gonna take him to an Akron Aeros game on a Friday, friends at work told me there are fireworks then. I’ll make it up to him. I promise.

    If you guys would of come here for the weekend, Silas could have seen some! 😉

    Got a good laugh watching you guys start a fire! 🙂 You should of used charcoal and lighter fluid, and brought some hotdogs and burgers to grill! 😀

    Looked like a fun day!!!!

    Nice outing you guys had at the park.It’s fun having a fire too! Enjoyed the video clip! The kids look cute swimming in their new pool…and I really like the photo of you and Brian 🙂

    Awesome day out with Dad!! I LOVED the part where you were starting the fire Brian. CUTE!!!! Charcoal works good but I’m sure the smoke from the twigs and leaves gave the marshmallows a good flavor. 😀

    Next time just use some starter fluid!

    Also, you have a great family, man. I am envious.

    A hint about cooking over a campfire: There should be no fire! Flames are the enemy of good roasted food, and you should let a fire burn down to hot coals before roasting. You’ll never see a perfectly browned marshmallow come out of a crackling fire. =)

    Also, paper is the best fire starter. Leaves and branches are fine but if they’re wet at all it’ll be a slow start, as you found out.

    Let’s go camping someday when our kids are older. Fun and biking with the kids, board games and hotdogs for supper, and pan fried steak and eggs for breakfast over the campfire every morning. woo!
