Wordless Wednesday: Happy Fourth!

Fourth of July! Time for burgers and explosions and celebration.


Happy Fourth! == Hobo Mama

Mikko and Alrik were so excited to be over at their aunt's house;
they ran around like energizer bunnies the whole time.

Slicing the watermelon. You gotta have watermelon.

Plate for the kids. I'm happy to report this was mostly eaten.

The grown-ups enjoyed blue-cheese celery in buffalo sauce.
I don't know how appealing the picture makes it look, but oh. my. gosh.

We enjoyed a "big mac salad" with plenty of secret sauce.
This is a hilarious Sam creation that's surprisingly paleo, yo.
Chopped-up burgers on cabbage or greens, ketchup, and the secret sauce.
Which is some sort of blend of his own mayonnaise, relish, and more ketchup, I think?
Well, who knows, right? It's a secret!

Alrik enjoyed a new tool set his aunt bought him
for his birthday that had finally arrived.

Once it was dark enough, we headed out into the closed street
to stake out a view of the fireworks.

While waiting, we shot out streamers from our little explosive poppers.

Alrik got in on the fun.

Pow!

Wait for it...

Yeah!

Alrik wasn't so enamored with the loud noises.

Visiting from Natural Parents Network!

Your photos are gorgeous! What an awesome occasion. Ours was... much less exciting. other than me getting to go see a new baby! You'll be pleased to know, however, that I took watermelon to the new mother. After all, its not the 4th of July without some watermelon!

Such great Fourth of July photos! I pinned that Big Mac Salad a while back but have yet to try it. It does sound soooo delicious! Look at your superhero on the potty! My 3 year old has no interest.
