    Surprisingly, even with extreme noise sensitivity in both of my boys, they LOVE fireworks on the 4th of July. Today we also HAD to go buy sparklers, tanks, poppers and smoke bombs, and my oldest is so excited that he’s having trouble waiting to set them off until his younger brother and dad get home. Thankfully, he has golf practice shortly, which will take up a lot of the afternoon.

We aren’t always near family for the 4th or near a body of water to swim, but wherever we have been stationed in the world we have had fireworks!!

    We have been going to a friend’s house for a party for years!! It started out as just a few families have some good ol’ fashioned fun on the 4th, but last year for the 10th annual party there were nearly 200 people there, all with matching tshirts and koozies! The kids swim, jump on the tramp, and enjoy a waterslide, while the adults enjoy a shrimp boil and potluck, music and great laughs! The evening is rounded out with a bike parade by the kiddos and hundreds of sparklers. Look forward to it every year!!!
