Our 4th was spent away from home.
We drove to the St. Louis area for a free Ok Go concert and fireworks display. Elizabeth was really excited to be there. Nathanael didn't really get what we were up to. Before the concert started, the kids got some face painting done. E still won't let me wash what little is left of her flowers off.
Elizabeth kept saying "It's the Ok Go guys!" and screaming loudly every time a song she recognized came on. Nathanael busted out his dance moves, and sometimes sang along, as well.
All of us really enjoyed our night out with music and fireworks. Definitely worth the drive.
