July 4

The night of July 4th, after the boys had gone to their beds but were not yet asleep, fireworks started up outside our back windows. We fished the boys back out of bed, and the four of us sat in our darkened house on the floor, watching through the back door, feeling the cool humid breeze blowing through the screen, as Gabe snuggled in his dinosaur blanket and Israel hurriedly arranged his blanket to copy Gabe. The boys loved the fireworks, and it was fun to be a family of four in the dark on the floor.
