Friday Night Fun:
Fireworks. Face painting. Fried Chicken.
On Friday night we headed over to see the fireworks at a local college. Even though we hit 92 degrees earlier in the day, the evening turned out to be breezy and cool (we call 80 degrees "cool" in the summer).
Mack and I were able to sit and visit with good friends as the children enjoyed running and playing. They threw the football and enjoyed snow cones.
Charlie spent a lot of the time picking "flowers" for me. I held them proudly....even though they were weeds that make me sneeze. :)
To celebrate the fireworks in style, we had fried chicken, potato logs, and Coke. Needless to say, I don't think I will be receiving any awards for serving the healthiest meal that night.
Annie loved the chicken....until she discovered the bone.
I have to say, this was one of my favorite nights
of forced family fun we have spent together this summer. I enjoyed every minute of watching them run and play.
I especially loved the moment below.
Hope you had a fantastic weekend!
