Fourth of July

We had a nice little Fourth of July. It was the first year in several years that my parents weren't here, so it felt strange not to be cooking a birthday dinner (my mom's birthday is July 4th) and spending the day with them. The Fourth is always a busy day at work for Jim, because the city of Huntington Woods does the city fireworks at Rackham, so Jim is always busy getting everything set up for that. He was able to take the morning off and go to church with us, though, so that was nice.
That evening, Drew and I had a little photo shoot in the backyard. I only took a few pictures because it was so hot! I took his annual picture by the shed with his flag. He looks so tall here to me! Then we drove out to the golf course. Jim's employees gave us some treats, and then one of the girls (a scrapbooker) took some family pictures for us.
Drew enjoyed this Icee pop, but he spilled a lot of it, and it stained up his belly, side, and back! He was a mess!
He also had some popcorn.
He had a great time playing with Nathan and Jocelyn and their cousin, Ian, while we waited for the sun to go down. Here are Drew and Nathan, ready for the fireworks.
Jim ended up surprising us and coming to get us right before the fireworks started. He took us out in a cart so we could watch the fireworks together. We don't usually get to see the fireworks with Jim, so it was nice!
They were beautiful, as usual!
We had a great Fourth of July, and I hope you all did too!

For some reason he looks a lot older than three in that new photo! Maybe it's his hair. He's just growing up too fast! I'm glad you had a nice fourth of July.

I think so too! I told Jim that Drew looks like he is about 5 or 6 instead of 3!
