We had a great time this 4th of July. First, we went to the Thompson Family Reunion, and enjoyed KFC and lots of visiting with extended family members. Then, we went home for a much needed nap, so the kids could enjoy the evening festivities. We were lucky to receive free tickets to the Stadium of Fire. (Thanks, uncle Bret!) What a fun show! I know I'm a little older than they're target demographic, but the Jonas Brothers put on a pretty fun show. Now, I'm not going to rush out and buy their latest album or anything, but the music was fun for Sylvia and I to dance to! She stood on Nate's lap, and shook her little behind to the music-she was more entertaining than the show! Unfortunately for Ben, he didn't really enjoy the music or the fireworks. I'm pretty sure it was just too loud for his taste. He spent most of the time huddled under his chair with his bag of popcorn! Poor kid. We couldn't even get him to hold a sparkler this year! But now he's been exposed to it, and maybe he'll do better next year.
