Celebrating the 4th - Workman Style

On the 4th of July we had the most relaxed Independence Day ever: We watched movies with my parents and hung out around the house, had some burgers and just relaxed. As for the Workman 4th, we had ourselves a little adventure!

My in-laws scored tickets to a Bees game for all of us to go! We even scored tickets to the tailgate party before hand, and we had lots of fun! We got a hot dog, free drinks, got to meet the Bees players, and even got a photo with the Bee! Little dude was TERRIFIED of the Bee, so Bubba wanted to have a photo with him.

That being said, we got rained out! It stormed during the tailgate party pretty bad, and they delayed the game for almost two hours! We opted out of not going, and instead headed home to light our own fireworks and enjoy some time as a family. 

So we lit some sparklers (little dude HATED them), and danced around.
And Aunt Carebear figured out that dancing with sparklers, creates COOL photos!

Our boys, the pyros. 

And now the obligatory firework photos.

With my husband practicing safe fireworks in the left corner.

Hope you're having a fantastic week! Happy Wednesday!
