The Fourth of July celebration was complete with loud popping firecrackers, smoke bombs, parachutes, snakes, and a night time celebration. Little Man was ecstatic that he could cause things to blow up without getting in trouble. Egee went through countless packages of smoke bombs. She doesn't particularly like the loud pop of firecrackers. MeeMee fixed the homemade ice cream - always a treat! Grandad made sure the kids were supervised with the fireworks and lit quite a few during the day himself.

Our week came to a close on a sad note, the tadpoles died. We had bought special food for the little guys and fixed up a tank. They seemed to be doing quite nicely. On the fourth, they were swimming around and eating. When I woke on the fifth, they were floating. Don't know what happened to them, but we will try raising tadpole later.
