4th of July and remembering Michael jackson

We spent the fourth at my parents this year. Since Scott works night now I did not want to hassle with the staium crowds by myself. i am not a patient driver so we went to my moms for a relaxing day. And after hearing how everyone was so dissapointed in the fireworks show at the Stadium this year ( Scott said it wasn't worth it) I am glad we did not go. We had a fun BBQ , games, hot tub and then a great fireworks show.
It was Crews first fireworks. he clapped and loved it for about 15 min. till he fell asleep.

Crew and Uncle Chad

The jets even flew right above my parents house. I never saw them that close even at the stadium. It was very cool. I wish I could have gotten a better picture but I was not expecting it and grabbed it and shot.

My brother Chad bought a ton of fireworks fo reveryone to watch. Thank you Chad!

Crew all set up for the show above.
The kids loved Sparklers

We played fun games

yes even I did some late night sparklers.


I watched the Michael Jackson funeral yesterday and was still in shock of his death. I remember rushing home from school as a young girl because they were going to play the long version of thriler that day and I did bot want to miss it. I remember dressing up in a sparkly white glove and red jacket because I loved him so much! I had posters in my room.
After watching the funeral I realized how many wonderful things he did for everyone. it is shame he had to have so many plastic surgeries because I remember the time I thought he was IT!
I know he did not do the things the world accused him of. Who could writet We are the world and make the world a better place and do such things. So to Michael I say goodbye and thank you for the wonderful memories.

After last year I was so willing to avoid the Stadium of Fire. I totally got my fill.

Relaxing is the way to go. That's what we did and we enjoyed our day.

Looks like you had a good day. Bummer Scott had to work. Crew is getting so big. He's at such a fun age right now.

Are you coming over for the annual fireworks at the Barney's on the 24th? If so, bring some goodies and show up around 8:30. It's been too long since we've seen you!

I thought this looked fun and was curious to see who would acually do it. So, even if I do not know you, sign the guestbook
