patriot games

the food:

the fun:

bryan, joining uncle owen in his traditional july 4th read-aloud of the declaration of independence. luckily, we just happened to have this HUGE authentic copy lying around.

afton, ear-plugged up and ready for this year's fireworks extravaganza to begin.

daddy, about to burn a hole in our grass (no, really).

summer, dutifully taught that she should not play with fire, is confused and frightened by this unexpected turn of events -- "here, hold this crackling, hissing, flaming stick and wave it around while the sparks make their way ever-closer to your fingers. it's fun, i promise!"

happy fourth to all!
