The next night (the 5th) Jason’s best friend Casey and his family dropped by on their way through to California and spent the night. We hadn’t used our fireworks on the fourth, so we lit them off in the park behind our house on the 5th. Our next door neighbor’s the Emmetts came and watched too, and the kids had a lot of fun. Casey and Tanya left the next day, after trying to convince us to move up to Idaho right now. It is in our eventual plans to be living up there, but we don’t see right now as being optimal, seeing as it’s not the best time to sell a house, among other things. I am hoping we will be here for another 4 or 5 years, and then settle in for good somewhere beautiful. We shall see. Hope everyone had a great holiday.
This is on the 5th, Jason was lighting the sparklers with our barbeque, because we couldn’t find a lighter! From left to right: Jaxson, Lincoln Emmett, Teegan, McCade Emmett, Elijah Hermansen, Katauna, Camry Hermansen, and Halli Hermansen.

On the fourth there was one firework that popped a little far and hit my girls. I caught this picture right after it happened.
