We did our family fireworks on the night of the 3rd so that we could have them with Zach, Alison, Kacey and Tyler (they were all taking off for the 4th). Eric clapped and cheered for each explosion while Beth struggled to get down and go touch them.
On the morning of the 4th we headed over to the Brewers for a huge breakfast. The food was good and the company better. We got to spend time with extended family we don't see very often. Here is Kacey, Tyler and Ryan.

While all the adults were upstairs the kids retreated downstairs to play in the basement. Here is Eric with some of the cousins' kids.
