The Fourth of July this year was super rainy. Unfortunately for us, that is the day for which we had Day Out with Thomas tickets. It was at the Kentucky Railway Museum, a soggy hour's drive away. Jonathan didn't seem as into it as last year but I think that was mostly the weather as it really put a damper on things (ha, ha!). Anyway, it was definitely not a picture-inspiring event--I literally took one picture.
Later in the day, the weather cleared up. We went to Joe and Cindy's house for a little cookout. The rain stopped long enough for the kiddos to do some sparklers. As promised, here are more of Cindy's fabulous pictures. Jonathan thought it was cool to be so close to fire but he was not overly fond of the odor put off by the fireworks:
After the kids used up all the sparklers, Jonathan moved on to bubbles. He is really into bubbles right now and has become quite the pro:
Maybe next year he will physically be able to stay up late enough to see fireworks since that is my favorite part about the Fourth!
