We spent this week getting patriotic. On Friday we donned our patriotic wear, baked some treats, packed our picnic, and headed into Columbus.
Going to the firework show was one of the few things the boys requested we get to do before moving. They were super excited. Once we got there, we maneuvered the crowds, found a sliver of space to lay down our blankets, and then we set up camp.
We luckily were able to find some friends and made it a party.
We ate some yummy food...the children were delightfully covered in neon orange cheese powder.
We had a lot of fun hanging out.
Waiting for the fireworks was definitely the hardest part. Patience ran low, energy ran out...but with a little snuggle time...and some, uh sugar...we made it until 10:00.
The fireworks were ah-mazing. The older two loved it...the Littlest stayed cocooned in Daddy's arms trying to shut out the world.
Our last Red, White and Boom was a very memorable experience. I wonder what Idaho offers??
