4th festivities

We rang in the Independence with yet another late night of Rockin the Band, we also dismissed Becca to Washington for a long while:(
Due to the late night, we slept in and mostly missed the pancake breakfast at the church. (pretty bummed) We arrived just as clean up was finishing. We decided to go see a movie then reported to the Crandall's for a BBQ. We had fun visiting with friends there, we then decided to fight the crowds at the River Front Park to watch fireworks with friends.

Some highlights: parking on the sidewalk (everyone else did it), Shane not standing to be recognized as a veteran, Ty whining the ENTIRE time about wanting a glowing thing, the beautiful live orchestra to soundtrack the fireworks, wonderful friends, no mosquito's, breezy weather, oh and last but not least that sweet little patriotic feeling you get when you ponder the true meaning of the holiday. We had a really good time!
