The next best thing after fireworks

Celebrating the 24th this year was extra special...we actually celebrated it!  In DC we'd usually remember the date and have some ice cream or something.  But this year we were with family, smelling the bbq, riding the go-karts, mastering the slip-n-slide, and throwing water balloons.  And thanks to my sister-in-law, the newest addition to the fun: making huge bubbles.

Look at that!  It was very neat.  And the kids loved shooting their water guns at the bubbles to pop them (notice little Oliver over there holding a water gun as Jess creates a "snake" bubble).  This is going to have to become a tradition.
