Celebrating the 4th

After Mike finally got finished working on the 4th, we went out to celebrate as a family. We started off with a cookout at Brent & Kerri's house. The boys loved jumping on the trampoline and playing in their giant sandbox. After stuffing ourselves with much delecious food, we headed over to the Overisel Fireworks. As always there was plenty for the boys to do; face painting, hayrides, sparkles, wheelbarrow baseball and much more. It was great!!!!!

Austin choose a whale

Lucas wanted balloons
and Brendan, a flag. (I think that's a pretty bad excuse for an American Flag)
The boys waiting for their turn on the hayride.

Not the best family photo - but it's the memories, right?

after about 40 minutes of fireworks, we left so we didn't get home after midnight. I found out later that fireworks went on for another 20 minutes. Now that's a show!!!!!!
Thanks to Mr. Broekhuis for his love of his community and fireworks.
