We spent the first week of July in Idaho at my Granny and Gramp's house with my dad and brother, sister in law Raquel and niece Maria. We missed out last year as Zeke was just a newborn so it was great to be back! Ty and Maria played so well together and it was great for them to reconnect.

The highlight of the whole trip for Ty was "fire in the sky." We picked up some fireworks at the local roadside stand and did some mini ones during the day and kept him up the latest he has ever been up to watch our family fireworks show.
Marc let Ty help him light the fireworks. Grauntie Tammy was aghast that Marc would allow Ty to light fireworks without safety goggles but he was (thankfully!) a little anxious about the fire and would run away quite quickly to the safety of the grass. He was so excited he was vibrating. I love the above picture with both Marc and Ty looking up at the fireworks with wonder. :)
Getting ready for the evening show:
Granny and Gramps live up the hill from a lake and across the lake are 3 separate towns. We have an excellent vantage point to see all 3 towns firework shows and we watched them while simultaneously enjoying our own show out back.
The whole family: (Missing Gruncle Bruce and cousins Ian and Erin)
The adults had some fun too.
