4th of July Spectacular

We got an early start on our 4th of July on Friday.  On the spur of the moment we decided to head to Discovery Green to let the boys splash in the fountains.

Or get completely drowned by them.  Because don't think for one moment this kid had any hesitation about getting into the thick of it.

Oh, no. He was waiting until were weren't looking to attack the massive jets again.  After having been told by us, and the staff on site to leave them alone...

Because he LOVES water. 

There's absolutely nothing better.

Well, except maybe the promise of the ice cream truck afterwards.  That is if it hadn't of disappeared.

And this kid... It's lucky he didn't get arrested for lewd behavior.

It generally takes him a little while to warm up to the water. 

But it doesn't take watching his brother go wild long before he wants to join in.

And the two silly monkeys both go wild.

Afterwards we decided to drive to Kemah and catch the Friday night fireworks.  Kevin called his Aunt Mary who lives close by and they came with us to watch the fireworks show.  They found a great place on the other side of the Kemah boardwalk.  It was perfect.  Great views of the lights of Kemah across the narrow channel.  Not to mention the constant stream of boats coming and going.  We even saw a pirate ship!

And spectacular views of the fireworks out across the water.  It was awesome.

Without the hassle of the crowds.  Unfortunately however when we were packing up at Discovery Green I packed my camera "somewhere safe."  Where it "wouldn't get lost" or "wet."  And then promptly forgot where that was.  So I didn't get any pictures of Kemah or the fireworks... so you will just have to take my word for it.  It was awesome.  And we will defiantly have to do it again next year.
