Our 4th of July

Sorry this is a little late, but here is our 4th in pictures:

Though you can’t really tell, we’re playing Scrabble

We played Professor Noggins’ “Explorers”… yeah, I know you’ve never heard of it…

We also made Sparkler Pretzels to bring to fireworks with us. They were originally all supposed to be red, white, and blue, but after 45 minutes of separating them from the other colors, we decided that they’d also look really great with ALL the colors together!

Making Sparkler Pretzels

Voila!

Voila!

And then it’s off to fireworks! The ones we usually go to had already taken place (shame on them!), so we tried a new location this year, and they were spectacular. I dare say they were better than the other ones, but unfortunately, they were also much farther away. πŸ˜•

Beautiful sunset on the way to fireworks

Playing with red, white, and blue glow sticks before fireworks... a rare thing!

One of only a few decent fireworks pictures - the right equipment really does make a difference.

So what did YOU do on the 4th of July? I’d really love to hear from everyone!

I am the middle of three daughters, daily living by the grace of God and in awe of Christ's perfect love, to suffer and die in atonement for my sins, and then rise from the dead to give me eternal life with Him. I get excited about reading/applying/talking about God's Word, travel, fellowship, nutrition, books, writing, photography, cooking and especially baking, designing things, event planning, and doing things with my family.

    Cool pictures! It sounds like you all had fun on Independance Day! πŸ˜€
    We didn’t do too much for the 4th. We went to church that night, where some other kids recited the Declaration of Independance, the Gettysburg Address, and Washington’s Prayer for America. Then we came home and watched fireworks on our roof :). Simple but fun.

    Glad to hear you all had fun on the 4th! Those Sparkler Pretzels look delicious! (I don’t think we would’ve had the patience to seperate out red, white and blue sprinkles for more than 3 pretzels. =D) Is the “white stuff” just frosting?

    Great blog!

    Thanks to all three of you for commenting! It always makes me so happy to find out there are new comments. πŸ˜€

    Looking back now, it WAS a little ridiculous to spend so much time on those sprinkles. 😐 Actually, the pretzels are covered in white chocolate! 8) We usually use yogurt candy coating, but we happened to be out of it, and we were too busy to drive an hour to the candy store to buy it! πŸ™„

    So, I’m really late, but I thought I’d comment anyway. πŸ˜‰

    We make pretzel rods for Christmas, Michelle, and we really love them! They’re also good if you crush peppermints (or the wintergreen mints) and sprinkle those on there. We really love them, and they’re gone before we know it!

    Your blog looks great, by the way!
