Happy 4th of July!

We had a fun, busy and bright Fourth this year! Our trailer is down at the beach for the summer so the kids and I loaded the car up Thursday morning and headed out. Friday morning we wandered around town checking out all the tourist shops before the crowds hit later in the day. Then we headed out to the beach.

It was a beautiful day! So unusual for this part of the coast too. The kids dug in the sand and gathered water while I read and got sunburned.
By the time we got back to the trailer it was time for a quick dinner and some smores before bedtime. I'm am not so hot at fire building, but we managed to get enough coals for the s'marshmellows.

Saturday morning we joined up with friends and family for the day. The kids played lots of air hockey and ping pong. And Paige made a new friend! (Well two but the human one isn't pictured!)
The guys had gone fishing all morning and brought back quite a catch! I'll spare you the gory wonderful pictures. Caden was absolutely fascinated by the whole process and pestered the guys with questions non-stop. He stayed out and watched all the gutting and cleaning!

Early evening we finally got around to what Trace and Caden really wanted to do though. Blowing things up! The kids lit off all the daylight type fireworks and had a blast doing it.
