The Best 4th Of July We Ever Had

Hello awesome readers! It's been three days since the 4th of July so this is like a late update. Also I wasn't been able to  update my blog lately. A lot of things had happened on me and my family  especially these past few days. One is that I started doing a new job that requires a lot of energy, at the end of the day I feel very exhausted. And two, is that, even though I have been working hard I still have to fulfill my mommy duties. So, I could not find time to write something. I am lovin my busy life though, I just have to make sure I get enough sleep. Anyway, how was your 4th of July? I would say we had the best 4th of July ever since we moved here in United state. I almost forgot that last month was our 4th year anniversary being on the US soil, so far so good with the help of my loving hubby, we were able to adjust to the community very well.

So wanna know why we had the best 4th of July ever so far? We'll, it's because we celebrated it with my hubby's youngest brother and his family at their resident. My mom-in-law was there too, and that was nice because my kids misses her so much. We seldom see them because they live far away and to have that time together was precious. We had sumptuous foods, we played badminton, we each took turn riding on their gator. If you don't know how gator looks like, here is the example photo.

Our nephews have pedaled go karts so my kids were riding on it the whole day. Of course, I tried it too and had a little race with my SIL. We also launched 3 rocket toys, my boys had a blast.  We went home in the afternoon  very exhausted but we managed to go to the park and watched the  fireworks display later that evening.

Here's the video of the fireworks display that night. I hope you had a wonderful 4th.
