The Vlog starts with Stephen and Mal eating dinner with Steve and Debra, because it's the 4th of July! Dan and Lindsey aren't here this year, because Lindsey's still in Wisconsin, and Dan is with his family in Jacksonville.
Because of a thunderstorm, when fireworks are going off it's hard to tell whether it's thunder or the fireworks. When fireworks started going off, Rocko wasn't really happy. Stephen isn't really sure where the fireworks are happening, he's looked out the windows and he doesn't see any. In the summer, there are a lot of places in Myrtle Beach that shoot off fireworks once a week and not just on the 4th of July.
Stephen was hoping to record some Morning Mario tonight, but Stephen and Mal got so tired at his parents' house, due to not getting enough sleep last night and because of the heavy meal they just had. They've been a bit sleep deprived lately. He says he'll work on editing some vlogs before going to bed. Tomorrow, he'll do Morning Mario when he's feeling more refreshed; that'll lead to better episodes and funnier content. He would rather do it when he's feeling good and awake and not a little tired.
