I have got to admit that July 4th is one of my favorite holidays. First of all, I love our country, I love the patriotic colors of red, white and blue, I love the decorations, always fun hanging with friends and chilling with the family. In fact, when I think about it, I don't think that we have ever had a bad 4th of July....its always good and this year was no exception.
Day started off with a good workout at the gym (sorry Kaye I missed your class) but it was a good workout nonetheless. Then we went and got our family picture taken and had fun making goofy poses together but ended with getting this casual shot. Sorry it is a little off center but it was not easy scanning a 11x13 picture.
Then we spent the day swimming and having fun at our friends house. We came home and jumped on the trampoline together..trying new tricks and seeing who could jump the highest. Ok we are dorks but we have a great time! Then we were off to watch the fireworks from the church building. Now in the past I have been heard to complain that I do not want to watch the same old fireworks again and because of my complaining we have gone to other places to view their fireworks. Places that include Thousand Oaks, Moorpark, Provo, Santa Barbara, Lake Powell, etc. But now I have to admit that the firework show is not all about the fireworks, it is about hanging out with people that I enjoy to be around and our dear to me. I was exactly where I wanted to be last night with so many people I know, at the church building, having a great time laughing and socializing. My kids having fun with all of their friends and Adam having fun serving up popcorn to the masses. And besides that, the fireworks were awesome! Here are some pictures I took when I realized that my camera was in the truck. We didn't take many though because the flash was so bright and it was blinding everybody...in some of the pics you can see people in the background shielding their eyes. Pretty funny!!
I hope that everyone had a fantastic 4th of July!!!!
