4th of July...

Wednesday, July 13, 2011
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the 4th of July - it ranks up there with Christmas as one of my favorite holidays.  We have been on the lake watching fireworks for the last 10 years and it is the BEST way to see fireworks in my opinion.  We generally spend the day with the whole family cooking something on the open fire, tubing, boating, swimming, jet-skiing and all things lake before getting ready and heading out on the lake with hundreds of other boats to gaze up and watch the beautiful display while listening to a great patriotic compilation of music (courtesy of my sister).  This year was the best yet because Solon joined us for the 1st time and was quite interested in the show despite the late hour...
We got the front of the boat this year (normally it is taken but we grabbed it first) and all snuggled in under some blankets (with Solon's friend "Bob")
Us and the other boaters - more came as the night went on.  At the end of the display you hear cheers and boat horns all around you and then the motors fire up and there is just a sea of boat lights going every which way - a little nerve-wracking but so cool at the same time...
The rest of the crew...

Happy 4th of July - so proud to be an American - despite our political differences God has blessed our country and we have much to be thankful for!
