Well – the boys sort of enjoyed the 4th.  Andy hated the noise of the big fireworks.  Alex loved it all.  Adam was so tired by the time they started (they got delayed an hour due to technical difficulties) he was pretty cranky.  But they liked the sparklers!  (And yes, we did use a bucket of water to drop them in and the ‘hiss’ it made hitting the water was pretty cool!)

Considering I had no idea what I was doing – I like them!

And now for something crafty!  And I do have a “Stuff I like” post – but it might be up later tomorrow instead of first thing.  This card is one we made at class last month.  I can’t get enough of this set!
