Our area played it safe this Fourth of July since California is so super dry right now. Although our legal fireworks weren't as eye catching as the illegal ones some neighbors blasted through the sky, the kids had a great time whooping it up and hollering after each light show.
Saturday night we did some backyard camping. Nothing beats sleeping under the stars on a warm, summer night. We originally wanted to pull out the ol' tent, but decided to camp out on our trampoline instead. We blew up the air mattresses and gathered our sleeping bags for a bed like no other.
Once the sun went down we knew it was time to fire up the camp stove for some S'Mores.
After dessert was out of the way we headed back up to the trampoline to get comfy and to prepare ourselves for a spooky story.
What a happy 4th we had. Can't wait 'til next year!
