The boys had fun climbing on the rocks, and Mattie even had a dramatic save -- we were walking on one of the upper parts of a trail (a ridge above the creek, headed back from the waterfall overlook), and he slipped right off the edge but managed to catch himself one-handed on the railing! (He would have been okay if he hadn't -- it was a steep slope but only maybe 15-20 feet or so--so he would probably have gotten scratched up but most likely not seriously injured.) But I'm glad for his quick reflexes!

Personal fireworks were legal in our county for the first time this year, so we lit a few in the backyard -- they were pretty good! Even better, we were able to watch the firework show from (we think) the country club down the street from our backyard.
(Elsa-dog was whimpering inside during the fireworks, but my guess is that it was because she was inside and almost everyone else was outside without her -- she didn't seem bothered or scared by the noise!)
