This is the last of the 4th of July posts I promise! We just packed so much in that I decided to do multiple posts because I have so many pics.
But in my mind, the 4th of July ain't over til something explodes.
Sidenote: when B and I were dating I told him that the 4th of July and Christmas were equally my favorite holiday. I don't have to explain why I love Christmas because who doesn't? But I think I love the 4th so much because I have such fond memories of going to my grandparents house, being with family, feeling so blessed to be an American, hearing stories about my dad and his brothers, eating good food, and watching my own brothers light fireworks. Watching fireworks makes me happy.
These don't need much of an explanation, but look at that sunset! I have to say it was more beautiful in person.
Eric found a fabulous spot for us to do fireworks. It seemed everyone in the entire community was out. Everywhere we turned there were BIG fireworks going off.
and here's the series of us sisters doing sparklers
it started off pretty calm
then we went crazy with our dancing and waving our arms in the air
It was the perfect ending to my favorite holiday.
