On the 4th of July, Laura and I took the kids to the local 4th of July festival. There was pretty much only one thing there for kids and that was the jumpy castle! Luckily, we got there early and there were no other kids yet. Nathan and Elizabeth had the whole jumpy castle to themselves!
When Jeremy got home from work that night, he took Nathan to see the local fireworks show down at the middle school. They lit the pack of sparklers for Nathan. Then, the big fireworks show started, and Nathan said he wanted to go home. So they saw about 5 minutes of the big show. Oh well. Maybe next year Nathan will want to stay longer!
