Happy Movie! And 4th!

Yesterday was a very fun day!  We did a little of all this....
 When I put the camera up to take a photo Allie yelled out "happy movie!" :)  It was indeed a happy movie!  We saw "Brave."
We tried to go to Riverdale park for some carnival games afterwards but they were packing up.  So, we went home and painted our faces.....and arms.....and legs. :)

That's suppose to be a butterfly but this is after they played in the water so it was the "leftover" paint.
The kids played on the water slide and played water balloon volleyball as well as this weird lunch-bag-throwing-with-water-in-it game that Mam's came up with????  They had a blast!

Here's some video of the 'game.'  Mam's had to sit of the cooler of water balloons to guard them.  She had to ration them out, otherwise the game would've lasted about 30 seconds. :)  You'll see the blow up water slide in the video too.

BBQ time!

 And what would the 4th be without fireworks?  Our poor Allie wasn't having any of it though!  She just cried and whined about them from the beginning to the end.  I still made her watch them though.  She's got to get over her fears somehow...right?!

I tell you, it felt like we were in the middle of a war zone!  There were fireworks going off like crazy in all directions the whole time we were out watching them.  We had some, the neighbors had some, the neighbors down the street had some, the people a street up from us had some going off, it was a bit crazy. This impeded Allie from enjoying ANY of it. But for the rest of us, it was pretty cool!  I got some video footage of a part of it - for those out of the country at the moment.

Allie keeps talking about the thunderstorm firework.  She also has a fear of thunderstorms too.   I never actually got that one on video for fear that my footage was getting too long.  It looked a lot like most of the other fireworks though. :)

 Just ignore the whaling from our littlest.  I'm so mean! 

Happy 4th to you!!
