July 4th and Grandma A

Grandma A came to visit over the long 4th of July weekend and really perked us all up. It was fun to have her here, as always, but I think this time the kids really enjoyed the special pampering that comes with a Grandma visit. And it was a great pick-me-up for me, too, since I love my Mama so much.
She helped with so much while she was here and did a ton of crafts and activities with the kids. One thing they really enjoyed was making fruit kabobs for our July 4th meal.
Grandma made everything so cute and festive for us.
And she and Richard took the kids to the fireworks that night. She even bought matchy outfits for the kids (our mistake was in letting them eat dinner in their cute outfits - Asher made a mess of his and had to change before the photo op.)
Here are some pics of cute kids waiting for the fireworks.

The fireworks were a hit. Everybody loved them. However, the getting home at 11pm part was a little rough. Apparently each of the kids had a meltdown on the way home for various reasons.
Overall, I think it was a memorable day for the kids.
