We had a fun weekend this past weekend. However, we didn't really do anything much different than normal. We spent most of the day at my parents, the kids swam and we grilled out hamburgers and hot dogs. It was a typical Saturday afternoon during the Summer. It wasn't until evening when we brought out the fire, that things started to feel a little different.
Just imagine with me... 11 kids under 10, fire, muddy ground, hot and muggy outdoors (even after dark) and mosquito's. Awww, just the perfect combo for a 4th of July kind of night. We have learned from the past and made everyone wear shoes so that no one stepped in the Sparklers droppings, but somehow we still ended the evening with a few burn marks to the arm, crying children and chaos.
It wasn't all bad, I think some of the kids actually had fun. Most of the parents were exhausted though. Here are the few pictures I was able to capture amidst the craziness and smoke. We went to the golf course green behind my parents house. Lots of room for the lots of kids :)
