We had a very nice 4th of July. It started with the Ashers' annual Grown-Ups only party on July 3rd. We had lots of neighbors this year, along with other friends, and we had a great time. Here are the only pictures I took that night....very late in the night as evidenced by the fact that Jason is "dancing."
The 4th was on a Friday this year, so we headed up to the O'Fallon Freedom Festival with a group. Jack got his first face painting and they rode rides and played games. They even had a craft area where the kids each made a visor. This was the first year the kids were old enough to stay until the fireworks (in previous years we went home to watch them from our driveway). They loved it!
