4th of July

We had a great 4th of July. We decided to skip going to a parade and go boating instead! It was so much fun. At one point Jacki and I got catapulted off the tube resulting in some sore muscles but it was well worth it.

Later that evening we had a little BBQ, played games and headed up to watch the fireworks. We decided that we would go to the school lawn on the hill to get a good view. When we got there sprinklers had turned on down by the parking lot. It slowly made its way up towards the field were everyone was sitting. We decided to go sit on the asphalt in case they did turn on. A few minutes later they all came on people were screaming, laughing, grabbing kids, blankets, chairs and running to get off the lawn. We didn't have a great view of the fireworks so we decided to head home since it was way past Logan's bed time and we could watch them driving home.

Needless to say we had a great 4th of July. I am so grateful to be able to live in this free country.

I am proud to be an American!
