Our 4th....

Fourth of July was busy and fun!! Friends, family, fun... the ugly side.. missing, sadness and wondering. Holidays are always that way bitter-sweet. Happy for the many things I have and sad for that missing piece... the hole in my heart that wont go away.. the missing, wishing wondering and wanting. I do my best to stay busy, try to keep my mind on the right track and be in the moment and celebrate what we have!!! We had a family day. Lots of yummy food, fun and laughing. We went to visit Kael and wish him a happy 4th as well. We decorated his grave and just before we started lighting off fireworks we let a few balloons go, we wrote him a little note and Stefon drew him a happy face and we kissed them and sent them to heaven. We had family and friends over for BBQ, drinks and fireworks it was a lovely night!! We built memories to last a life time. The kids were so amazed by the fireworks, they ooh'd and awe'd at their beauty. Daxton had a little mishap where a popper flew in his eye... we luckily got it out right away but it scared the crap out of me and him... after we got it out we took him back out side and to ensure he wouldn't be scared for the future years Layne had him throw a few more poppers and let him help light off the grand finale big 2 fireworks.. he sure thought that was fun!! I'm so proud of him for jumping back out there and not being scared!! We had a good time I am so happy that we were able to spend it together, remembering the real reason for the 4th and building a strong foundation for the boys. I hope you all had an amazing 4th as well. Here are a few pics from our fun!!

I agree with you about the bitter/sweetness of holidays. I think one of the hardest things for me is that others just don't understand that.
