The 4th was not our normal day. I left at 5:30 am for a 12 hour shift. Joel left for Peru for 11 days at noon and Gigi and Grandpa had the boys for the day. I was so sad that I really didn't get to tell Joel goodbye, but Rachel cheered me up by sending me pics of the boys during the day. I know they had a blast. After work, I went to pick the boys up and they wanted so badly to go watch fireworks. This tired momma "ruined" their day. I just couldn't do it. So, we got to listen to them ALL NIGHT from inside our house.
