Thornock Visit Part 3: Happy Fourth of July!

Part 3: Happy 4th of July! When celebrating the fourth with your best friend expect day long fireworks, patriotic meals and lots of fun. 
To start of the day we had flag waffles. The kids loved these and all ate so well. 
After breakfast we did daytime fireworks. 

Tucker loved the mini flags and he carried it around everywhere with him.
He kills me. Love him so much. 
How cute are these girls in their matching dresses? 
And the boys had coordinating shirts. I just love all these kids. 
We also snagged our annual fourth of July family picture. 
And here are my patriotic babes. 
We did fourth of July tattoos too. The kids loved these. 
Then we ate lunch and took naps. I knew it would be a late night so we wanted the kids to be rested and ready for the rest of the fun.
After naps it was off to the pool. 

How cute are these little swimmers. I left Benson home with Chris and it was so much easier to watch the rest of the kids this way. 
After the pool we went home and prepared dinner. 
This was our food setup. 
We had bacon wrapped shredded pork sandwiches, corn on the cob, baked beans 
and cherry pie- for dessert. 

While the kids were napping, Tanner and I made these cute mini pies for the kids. 

We ate dinner outside and watched the neighborhood fireworks. 

How cute is this little firecracker? I love him so!

And this cute Daddy. He's my favorite person.

The kids had so much fun doing fireworks. We did pop-it's, bee's, tanks, snakes- all the classics. 
Then as it got dark we busted out the good stuff. we did sparklers, roman candles, and lots of mortars. 
The dads probably had more fun than the kids though. 

It started sprinkling during our fireworks so we moved everyone inside the garage as best we could. (Ignore my crazy/full/disorganized garage!)
We ran inside when the rain came down a little harder and took a break with some glow in the dark marbled balloons. The kids loved these. We had a dance party too!
Then it was back outside for more fireworks.
It was so fun because we could watch our fireworks and in between ours, we could see tons of fireworks going off all around the neighborhood. It was awesome. 
We had such a great fourth of July.
It was a blast and the kids loved all the fireworks. Most fireworks are illegal in Texas so the Thornocks had a blast shooting off fireworks and watching all the neighbor's.
I hope everyone  had a great 4th of July and stayed safe!
