Happy 4th of July

The 4th of July is a big deal at our house. It’s not just America’s birthday. We celebrate family too. The Armstrongs have always had a large 4th of July and Matt and I continue the tradition. This year was great just like all the others. Besides the fact that the family babies were not always pleased with our show of lights, it was a very non-griswoldesk kind of year. Somehow, not one thing went wrong! It’s an AMAZING feat to acomplish and we pulled it off this year! We’re proud!

We spend the day having fun, eating, playing ball, and jumping around!

As the night sets in we like to sit around watching the fireworks. We do our own, at home, in the driveway.

Sometimes we take pictures and video of the really good ones.

During and after the show of lights, we like to be goofy, have fun, have some drinks and hang out with friends and family.

There is nothing quite like the smell of the 4th of July. It’s smoke, bug spray, charcoal and hot dogs. I’m sure it’s not a great marketing idea for a candle but it smells great on the 4th. It’s the smell of summer, family gatherings, delicious foods and simple fun.
