Love these four kiddos.

This cute iPhone snag of our kiddos was taken right before we loaded up and headed out for the day to the zoo!

And after all that fun the big kiddos were treated to some “Build-A-Zoo-Friends”.

Soooooo….. After a fun (long) zoo day we decided to stay at home and put on our own fireworks display.

The kids LOVE these parachute fireworks.  They have a small burst up in the air and out pop one or two “parachutes” which the kids run to catch as they float back down.

To our (pleasant) surprise the kids saw a local fireworks display right from our neighborhood.  Here they are running down our street to find a better viewing spot overlooking our neighborhood lake!
