After the parade we had a BBQ at our house and then cake and ice cream for Grandpa. Then after Susan and Sarah's family left we watched a movie with the kids and Seth and Sally.
When it got dark, we went outside and sat on the porch and watched fireworks. I didn't realize until tonight that we could see some of the local fireworks from our front porch--some of the high ones, anyway. We have usually gone elsewhere to watch them instead of staying home. Since we were here tonight and could hear them we went out front to look and had a pretty good view of them, so I sat on the front porch with the kids and watched them. It was kind of nice.
We will continue our celebration today (Friday) since it is Grandpa's actual birthday and we still have cake left! I mean, you can't stop the party till the cake's gone, right?! Lol!
