So early the next morning Jax and I made a special alone trip to WalMart (cuz their always open…) and I tried very hard to muster up some patriotic something or other. Here's how the day ended up;
The boys helped me dipped strawberries.
We had a picnic lunch on the back deck with Dad.
It just so happened to have these fun things in my cake station. We made taco rice for dinner and I made corn bread muffins just so we had something to stick the pinwheels in.
We didn't end up making a big effort to go see fireworks because and chill night at home as a family sounded better and a normal bedtime sounded even better. But the kids had a great day and we made some great memories as a family of 5. And that's all that matters.
