We didn't make it to fireworks on Friday night. The ones we usually watch weren't starting until 10pm and there was NO WAY I was keeping the kids up that late.
An awesome friend mentioned that her family would be going to a fireworks show at a local park only a few blocks from our house but on Saturday.
How we could not have known about this amazing fireworks show so close to us? It was awesome and worked so well. The only downside was that because it's a neighborhood display we were really close to the fireworks.
As in a hundred feet from the firing zone! I got a few pictures of the fireworks but none of the great face painting Sara did on the kids.
Happy Independence Day!

The kids are in a day camp for the next few days.
I can't decide whether I'm excited or really nervous. (The coffee isn't helping!)
This is new for them and me, but I think they will have a good time and really enjoy it. It's just hard to leave when they have fears of being abandoned.
And those fears are legitimate.
Off to run some errands!

Mark started working on the bathroom bright and early this morning--after his Saturday morning waffle-making ritual.
He had to build out the wall where the new plumbing will go for the shower and build an additional wall for the other end of the tub. But none of that could happen until he put the subfloor in, which involved raking the rubble smooth and removing some old pipes. He got it all done in record time while I took some of the kids grocery shopping (and I now remember why I enjoy doing that after they're in bed!).
Tomorrow after church Mark's going to put in some hardwood flooring and hopefully the toilet. I am rather excited to have a second bathroom--or at least a second toilet--again!
