10th Birthday & 4th of July

I took Tuesday off of work to celebrate Matthew's birthday. It was his birthday wish that I take the day off. We did some running around: grocery shopping, trip to Blockbuster, and the library to renew his Harry Potter book.

Matthew decided to have a Snicker's cake instead of an everyday birthday cake. We accidentally bought trick candles. My house was filled with smoke after the second time he attempted to blow them out. He was determined to blow them all out and tried four times. After that, we had to open the front door. Trying to let the smoke out, we let the rain in. Sigh. It's over. Here are some pictures:

Then to celebrate 4th of July, we participated in a parade, and did sparklers at home. Here are some photos of the sparklers:

PS - Mom, if you read this, I've been trying to email you - but they keep getting returned as undeliverable. How did the Father's Day cups work out?
