We love the 4th of July, I mean, how can you not? Fireworks, grilling out, friends, parades, etc... It's great! At least, normally it's great! This year though was a little less great considering it rained the WHOLE day, ok it stopped for about an hour or two and thankfully those were the hours of a local community parade at Collins Park and the big Go Fourth Celebration at our local Lake Shawnee! It's always a good show. There is just something so fun about being out in a field surrounded by fireworks anywhere you look! It's amazing to see how beautiful it all is! And even more so to see it all in the eyes of a 2 year old! Lexi has been a little scared of them but this year she is a little easier to reason with and now she's excited about them. She still won't hold a sparkler, but now we have a goal for next year. Now she's just in what I like to call the "Awe" stage. She just claps and says "wow!" everytime she sees a pretty firework! It was fun! So, here are some pictures from our day! Hope your day was a day of "Awe" as you celebrated our freedom and each of those people that have fought so hard and even to the death to give it to us! Thank God for them and God Bless America!
