Independence Day

Happy Independence Day!

I hope you all had a wonderful 4th! I know we did :) Since the US' independence day landed on a Sunday we, of course, went to church. It was a wonderful time fellowshipping with the believers at Christ Fellowship.

After church and dinner we were going to go to a park with Grandma to watch a fireworks show, but the weather did not cooperate, and those fireworks were canceled. But it seemed like those were the only fireworks canceled. We stepped outside onto the Elliff's porch and all we could hear was, "Boom! Bang! Snap. BOOM!" Not only could we simply hear them, but we could also see quite a few fireworks :) So, the Elliffs, Simpsons, and our family (minus Damarise who was sick :( ) stood out on the porch in the drizzle and watched the fireworks :) It was great.

After the fireworks seemed to have ended, and the rain began to pour down, we headed home. But on our way home we saw some amazing fireworks off in the distance. So we pulled under and overpass and watched a brilliant firework display.

We were snuggled warmly in the van, under an overpass so our car was staying dry, and still had a great view of fireworks lighting up a stormy sky.

It was definitely a memorable 4th of July filled with fun, wetness, and sporadic fireworks :)
