Fourth of July Festivities

We spent our 4th of July at my parents.  That was our last trip up there before we move (sniff, sniff...)  We always have a good time doing the small town festivities. 
First we went to a parade in a neighboring town.

 We enjoyed some s'mores by roasting marshmallows over the bbq grill.  Tanner had the hardest time eating his since he was so sticky and the kid hates to be sticky.
 The kids also enjoyed some popsicles during the day.  Porter loves being a big boy too.
 Stephen and I took Vance and Tanner to see the firework show this year.  It was the first time we've taken them.  My parents stayed home while Porter slept.  It turns out we could have gone in my parents front yard or their backyard and watched all the fireworks we wanted to see, but who knew?  The fireworks the city put on were small, but fun and it took us about 3 minutes to drive home.  Can't complain about that.

Is it Tanner's age or has he never liked to be sticky? I ask because Jillian also hates to be sticky. I'm hoping it's a phase because she gets sticky a lot. Glad you had a good time! We didn't even bother with fireworks this year. The girls pooped out way too early.
