4th of July

This year for the 4th of July we decided to not go into Annapolis like we always do.  It was causing me some anxiety knowing it was going to be my first 4th of July not being in Annapolis with family, but it ended up being a lot of fun.  We had a cook-out for lunch with our neighbors and good friends Erin, Rod, EJ, Mya, and Derek.  The kids all had a water balloon fight with Ben and had fun playing in the little pool and on the slip & slide.  After the cook-out we had a quick nap and then went to Bel Air for a parade.  The parade was so long (2 hours), but was really good and the kids had a blast.  After the parade we went to watch fireworks also in Bel Air, but at a different location.  We set up with blankets and chairs in a big field at a local high school.  The kids all had fun running around playing with a bunch of other kids.  We did some sparklers and then were ready for the fireworks which ended up being really good as well.
