Low Key Fourth Of July

We had a very nice 4th. But, it was very low key. Tuesday, we went over to the neighbors to watch fireworks. There must have been a couple of hundred people there watching about $600 worth of imported (Indiana) fireworks. Yesterday, the girls and Ty hung out at the pool until the thunder started. Since the weather was so iffy, we decided to skip going to Blue Ash or Sharonville for fireworks. Instead, we grilled some Black Angus steaks (the girls and mine were just brown on the outside and cool in the center), sauted some kale and I invented up a sweet potato casserole recipe. Then, we watched Les Miserables. The girls loved it. Poor Shayna though bawled like a baby when Fontine died. It took her about 15 minutes to recover.

Just as the girls were coming up to go to bed, we noticed all the fireworks shows were going. It's hard to get an exact count. But, we could see at least 10 clearly from our front yard.

No pictures from yesterday (bad Brian!). Sorry.
