July 4th Celebrations
We spent July 4th at home here in Bowling Green rather than going to Lexington as originally planned. After a week in Florida and 14 hours in the car with a whiny little boy, we didn't exactly feel like traveling. So, we stayed home and had our friends Gabe, Tina and their son Owen over for a cookout.
I was very excited about my Flag Cake. I think next year I need to work on the presentation a little. At least it tasted better than my usual attempts at cooking dessert.
After eating we took the boys outside for some fireworks. We didn't spend a lot of money on them this year because we weren't sure how Eli would react. He did fine with the noise, but enjoyed the cheap fountain display over the one the ones that launch in the sky.
Sunday we met up with the Adkins family once again to watch the fireworks display down at the Barren River Lake. Eli wore his PJs because mommy had to work at 5:00 the next morning and didn't want to have to wake him to change him at home.
All in all, it was an amazing weekend full of fun, family, fireworks and wonderful July 4th Celebrations.
