One Firework at a Time!

It's Thursday night late and the thunderstorms have finally passed. The thunderstorms that thankfully held off until after Aden's birthday party.  We agonized all day about moving the party inside or changing the date but we had a beautiful night and all the kids had a great time.  Let's finish off last weekend.  This was Saturday afternoon after the beach and pool.  
We need to get ready for dinner!
What should I wear mommy?
We gave up our precious parking spaces and went to the annual Fourth of July barbecue at Aunt Judy and Uncle Dave's house.
The boys and everyone else were in great moods.
We ate lots of food and caught up.
Move back from Atlanta so you can babysit!
I agree!
They have discovered their feet.
 We had a great time but we needed to get back for fireworks.  
Amy put the babies to bed and I walked with the older kids to the beach.  On the way we passed the Dairy Bar which was crazy crowded again.  

 Waiting for the fireworks.  They go off in the middle of Margate.  We are facing Atlantic City here.
 People around us were shooting thing off.  Ariel wasn't scared but she was curious.
 Bonfires too.
 Brianna and Adam joined us.

Ariel was bored half way through.  I get they are expensive but to send one up at a time for 15 minutes is not what they should be doing.  Just give us 3 minutes of craziness and everyone will be happy.
 We left early and got ice cream.  The crowds soon followed.
Sunday morning the kids wrestled on top of us.
Beach time!
We actually got on the beach before 12.  
 It's late and I'm tired so I will hold back on the commentary.  

 Ariel was such a mess.  Ice cream and cuts everywhere.

 Noah came to swim.

While we were getting ready to leave, Eli relaxed with a book.
We drove home after dinner and there was no traffic!
