Fourth of July

We really didn't do a whole lot this weekend. Pretty much stayed around the house had a lazy weekend and tried to get a few things done in preperation for the arrival of the babies.

Daddy did make homemade icecream with the boys to have before the fireworks. Helping Daddy get the mix ready. Strawberry was the flavor of choice.
 The boys decided it would be a treat to add white chocolate chips
 Watching Daddy add the rock salt and ice
 Patiently watching the ice cream churn
After dinner we had friends over to watch the fireworks. They haven't seen each other since preschool let out everyone has been on vacation. I think they were excited to see each other.
 Playing with sparklers we had to find something to do to pass the time. Even though we could see the fireworks from our house they still were not scheduled to start until 9:45!
 This is as close as Benjamin would get to the sparklers and to say he didn't care for the fireworks is to put it lightly. He cried and went in the house he HATED them. He didn't even want to watch from a window inside the house. Hopefully in the next few years he will start to enjoy them because for the past couple of years he has wanted NOTHING to do with them.

 This picture makes me think of a firebug we may have to keep our eye on him =)
Enjoying the homemade icecream!
 Taking a little break before the fireworks start watching a movie. Benjamin & Jackson (6 months apart) Christian & Aidan (both 4)
 YAY!! Time for the fireworks you know you live close to where they are setting them off when they shake your whole house and debris lands in your driveway/yard. They are amazing to watch that close up and my hubby got a couple really good pictures!

 The big kids watched them outside while the younger two decided it would be best to stay in the house.
Hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July!!
