A Grown Up Fourth: Dorks on the Town

July 3rd PD and I were invited to a grown up party downtown to watch these:














From the top of this:













The PKs spent the night with the PGs because we planned to get home very late.  Although when we arranged it, we didn't know how very late we would end up being!  I guess when you let a dorky political couple out on the town, they lose track of time.












We ate outside at Barcelona before heading to the party:














We had a really great time.  The fireworks were fantastic:














I guess around one in the morning when we left the party, we really turned into super dorks because we started taking pictures of ourselves in the elevator.















At two in the morning we were eating cheeseburgers at a diner we used to go to before we had the PKs and we were home by three.  I think the last time I was up that late was the night I had PK1.  (PK2 had the courtesy to be born at 11 in the morning)










The next morning, PD had to go help out at a parade and I drank a bunch of coffee and went over to the PGs.  We had a great BBQ with burgers and sausages and beans and grilled veggies and corn on the cob and apple pie and homemade ice cream.  Then we met some other families for the fireworks.  I don't have pictures of any of that because I was too tired to do much but put one foot in front of the other for the rest of Saturday.  I did take this one shot of the PKs:
