Happy 4th of July!

Happy Fourth of July! Unfortunately, Harold had to work and was not able to spend the day with us but thanks to my bf, Janella, we still had a great day!

We had a lunch of BBQ and then went to watch a firework show. I was so excited when we pulled into the parking lot. Families were hanging out in their cars and on blankets, kids were playing football and a few people had their radio on. Yay! It felt just like New Orleans when everyone hangs out waiting for the parades to begin. :) I was so glad we brought some lawn chairs and a blanket!!
A young guy promoting his bounce house business was giving away free glow sticks and our girls couldn't have been happier. Glow sticks AND fireworks in one night? They were in heaven.

As soon as the show started, about half the crowd took off - turns out most of the show was blocked by an overpass! This is what happens when you live in a state that finishes their roads in a timely manner... no one realized that it was no longer such a great spot! We didn't mind.

Next year I need to remember my camera! My iPhone is not the greatest when it comes to taking pics at night. Oh, well. Hope you all had a great day full of fun, family and fireworks!!
