4th of July

I missed the family BBQ this year. LOVE my family. I really am blessed and have an amazing LARGE family. We all enjoy spending time together :)  This year my husband and I spent the 4th of July at my parents beach house in Long Beach, WA  love love love the beach.

We always stop in Seaside, OR at Mazatlan on the way to the house. mmmm Mexican food. The portions are BIG, cheesy goodness :)
Downtown Seaside was PACKED with so many people showing their patriotic spirit. I love when people get into the spirit of the holiday's. Here's just a sample of what we saw:

At the house I whipped up a little table of snacks for us to enjoy before the fireworks.  We were still stuffed from Mexican food so we skipped dinner and went straight for the snacks. 
Cracker Jacks, Jello cookies and Pop Rocks cupcakes . 
Down on the beach waiting for the fireworks to begin.
The spectators down on the beach gave us quite a show before the professional one began.  I think we saw about $2,000 worth of fireworks go off from all the people down on the beach. They looked just about as good as the pros.
The professional show was great but they had some technical difficulties and there was some lulls in the show.  Not to worry though. The spectators filled right in with their own fireworks :)
The next day was the beach clean up and there was A LOT to clean up.  I was about to say the weekend but it was the middle of the week! Let's try this again, the 4th and 5th were absolutely GORGEOUS! I didn't want to go back to work on Friday :(
I hope you had a GREAT 4th. Tell me all about it!  Love hearing about how others spend their holiday's.
