Last year it was alot more under control and even more so this year. Gone are the days of random fires catching out in the dessert and stuff. What bummer. It was so under control it wasn't much fun really. There were official launching pads and people were parked in straight lines and everything. Buzz kill. Get this...I even got into trouble because I was doing sparklers in the parking lot with Rees & Cooper. Wow this has changed. So we watched the free show which was great and just went home. It was fun this year to have Ashley & Benjy join us but the grand adventure is so tame now. I am glad we got to witness the few rowdy years because it was hilarious if not a little dangerous.

|Cooper...he was banished to his car for awhile since he wouldn't sit on anyone's lap and wanted to wander off. It was great until he got into the carmel corn and smeared it all over their car.|
So this all happened the weekend before the 4th. For the official holiday we went up to Rob & Beth's for a yummy barbeque. It was a great evening. When we got home we went walking and didn't even feel like going up to the fairgrounds for the fireworks so ..we didn't! Wow what rebels we are. We watched them on our walk and enjoyed them from afar.
