I think that the best way to spend the 4th of July is at the pool, relaxing and eating, with a little bit of sleeping (as long as you have a friend telling you to flip when you’re sufficiently crisp on one side).

If you wanted to sleep, you could:
If you wanted to read, you could:
If you wanted to play, you could:
If you wanted to float, you could:

We even played with sparklers:
After setting off the finale and a visit from the cop (he had to respond to the neighbor’s call about us), we went and frolicked in the water again. (Can you tell that we are all water babies?)
And, of course, we enjoyed the warmth of a fire at the end of the night:
Happy 4th, everyone, I hope you enjoyed your day as much as I did. And for more sparkly pictures, please click here.
