July 4th 2012

The 4th of July was never a big holiday to me growing up.  One of our dogs was deathly afraid of fireworks, so we always stayed in...which I was okay with. 

When I got older, I just never did anything "big" to celebrate the day.  I worked in Human Resources at Target for 7 years, and we all know that retail stores never close, so a lot of my time was spent there.

When I met Jared, he introduced me to his entire family for the first time at their annual 4th of July party.  This is a party thrown by his Dad's side, and his father is one of nine children....needless to say, this party is HUGE!!!  It's at a house literally in the middle of nowhere, and they even have their own fireworks show at the end of the night.  It's a fun time, and has become a tradition for our family. 

Last year Lincoln didn't do well with the fireworks.  He was all excited for about  10 minutes, then he flipped out and we had to leave.  I was really hoping this year would be a different experience for him. 


He loved them.  He seriously DANCED to the fireworks!!  He was so excited.  He was dancing like a crazy man, that every so often, he would just fall over.  It was hilarious.  I was laughing so hard, I was crying! 

Here are a few pictures from our day...

It was a great day, indeed.  Lincoln had the best time ever, which makes Jared and me both very happy.   I love this is a yearly tradition for our family! 

I'm linking this post up with Growing Up Geeky for Toddle Along Tuesday!!
