Independence Day Celebrations

Our Independence Day celebration kicked-off this year with a patriotic concert in the park...






We finished canning all the pickles...
And we went up to Twain Harte to picnic with the family...

Michael purchased his first box of fireworks ever! He had so much fun lighting them. After Mikey's Fireworks Spectacular we sat on the lawn and watched the sky light up with (illegal) fireworks set off by people all around Motown until well past midnight. Aren't fireworks beautiful?

We made some old-fashioned moon pies...

And we spent some time with one of our nephews and one of our nieces.
What a ham this guy is - he loves to get his picture taken :)
