Fourth of July!

We celebrated the Fourth of July at the Coleman's house where we also celebrated Mike's birthday (two days early).
I don't think Mike would want me to discuss his age so instead I'll just show you this cheeseball I made for the party.
Mike's nephew's girlfriend brought yummy patriotic cupcakes.
Which made us very happy.Rock has taken an icing-first approach to cupcake eating. I'm not sure that I would recommend it.
Pause and appreciate the USA ROCKS! t-shirt purchased for him last September. I'm a firm believer in dressing in all red-white-and-blue for Independence Day festivities.
We worked more red into the outfit via the flip-flops. I'm telling you - the ladies dig the patriotic look!
Then the kids watched some Veggie Tales. And yes, I consider Becky to be a kid (at heart)!
Since he was still hopped up on the sugar from the cupcakes, we let Rock stay up late to watch the fireworks on TV. Trust me, their on the TV behind him. It's hard to capture these things on film.
For the record, Fix was around for all events in this post. He just managed to avoid the camera.
