Chris happens to be gone every year on the 4th. I do not dare touch fireworks, so this year we decided to buy some and do a early celebration so he could be home when we do it.
We invited family over for a cookout. It was yummy, had steaks, homemade hamburgers, hotdogs, beans, and baked potatoes. Too bad the grill decided to go up in flames while cooking lol I hate that grill sometimes. You buy a expensive one and still have issues. ither way the food came out really juicy even though it did not look that way :)
The fireworks were not what I expected for how much we paid but the kids seemed to enjoy them. Even though the huge box of sparklers I bought were more exciting to them.
