Our Fourth of July was casual and low-key, filled with work, work, work.
But around 3:00, I started thinking it would be a shame to let the day go by without SOME festivities, and festivities are always more fun SHARED.
SO very spur-of-the-moment and impromptu, I called my sister and told her and the kids to come over for a S'mores and Sparklers night. (Her hubby had to work, you see)
Which they did.
There is no real photographic genius to show, but here are a few worthwhile ones for posterity.
I told Mattie about the S'mores night and he got right to work making a firepit and some rustic wooden benches.
Aren't they fabulous?! It's great to have a firepit and we've talked about making it a weekend tradition to use it.
S'mores, sparklers and laughs until long past dark when we bid the Brown's farewell and tucked our own sweetlings into bed and then Matt and I spread out some blankets and soaked up the last bit of warmth from the fire arm in arm under a bright, nearly full moon.
I can think of nothing better.
