We spent our Fourth of July with my family in Lee’s Summit, Missouri and it was absolutely fantastic. From the “poppers” Max popped (five at a time! once a whole box at a time!) to the amazing dinner prepared by my parents (wings! brisket! macaroni and cheese by me!) to the fireworks shopping to the lazy morning to the swimming at my aunt’s pool to the lunch at Jimmy John’s to the all day lighting of fireworks to the moment the fireworks got too loud for little ears and we headed inside, it was the perfect Fourth. Here’s some photographs from our day!
