Laughter, Love, and Light Creatures

After spending the evening of July 4th witnessing a wizardly battle of good vs. evil playing with sparklers, we packed up and headed to hang with my in-laws' for a while. We decided to head back down to the bay so we could play in the water some more. 

*It should be noted that we played in the water more during this trip than we ever did when we lived down there. We can only assume it's because we were "on vacation" and wanted to take advantage of  the amenities that we no longer live near. Weird, I know. Moving on.*

My father-in-law recently purchased a Jeep Wrangler and Canon was dying to ride in it, so the three of us took it down to the water. As you can see, Canon thought he was hot stuff in a vehicle that was completely open. 

We had a blast once again splashing and swimming whilst spending time with more family. Everyone, and I mean everyone, joined in the festivities.

After spending a few hours playing, we headed back to their house but not before stopping at a place that holds special meaning to us. Craig and I said our "I do's" in this very spot in 2007. I know. We're sappy. Sue us. Canon's getting pretty good at taking our picture though, don't you think?

After arriving back at the house, we ate and played the Wii for a while.

Sidebar: Heading soccer balls on the Wii Fit is much harder than you think. Take note of flying shoes and pandas for they shall inhibit your score.

Laughter and drinks ensued. Then, of course, we decided to play with sparklers some more. Canon was feeling a little braver - not much but a little - and wanted to show his grandparents what he could do.

He was so proud of himself for doing this, but would drop each sparkler on the driveway before it finished, well, sparkling. 

Normally I would stomp them out pretty quickly, but I did try to capture one and it reminds me of a creature of light. Weird? Yeah, probably, but hey that's me.

*Sidenote: Canon just walked up and saw this. He immediately exclaimed "what is that?! is it a fairy?!" So, see? A creature of I said. 

Our Independence Day weekend was full of family and fun and we couldn't have asked for a better time.

So how did you celebrate our country's independence? If you aren't in the US, never fret. I'd love to hear how you like to spend your weekends!
