Happy 4th of July!

For about a month now I've been thinking that I wanted to have a low-key 4th of July... I absolutely have LOVED the past 4th's, but for some reason I just wasn't feeling it this year.  I just wanted to hang out... so I was pretty excited when all my friends felt the same way :)  So the morning we spent our time at the pool and then came home to nap before heading to Joline's house for dinner and street fireworks.  The boys had so much fun... and behaved so well despite being so late at night when we finally got home.  We decided to skip the big outdoor fireworks this year- and Deacon was totally bummed... until we got home.  We looked out our windows and realized you could see the big displays from Deacon's window and our window... and they were CLOSE- we didn't have to strain to see them.  It was awesome.  Then the big finale came when our neighbor 3 houses down set off a huge {illegal} display behind us... holy crap it was the coolest thing I've ever seen.  The best part was that Zac slept through the whole thing- which was a huge surprise to us.  

A beautiful day... all around.

Deacon picked out this {insanely expensive} firework from the fireworks booth... the guy referred to it as a "finale type firework"- so all night Deacon kept asking begging for the "GRAND FINALE FIREWORKS!!!"

I have to say, seeing the 'Barrel-o-fun' fireworks that Deacon picked out was awesome, but the car behind the display was priceless.
