My favorite holiday!
The holiday full of friends, hot dogs, fresh fruit, swimming pools, grills, and fireworks.
What's not to love?
I love the Fourth of July!!
I always knew what to expect from the 4th when I lived in Enid.
Leonardo's 4th of July celebration in the morning
Swimming all afternoon at my parents' house.
Dad grilling some awesome food.
Grandpa giving us $60 to spend on fireworks (okay that only happened once, but it was awesome!)
Going to the Quail Meadows/Hillsdale/Enid fireworks shows.
Coming home and setting off our own for hours.
In Houston its a little different, but still wonderful.
Usually we spend the day with kids from the youth group.
We don't have a grill, but there is always some good food.
I don't know if Houston does a big fireworks show, I'm sure they do, but we haven't found it yet.
And we ALWAYS set off our own fireworks.
The favorites have been:
Sparklers - Duh
Pretty Smoke Bombs:
And Fire Balls: made out of the 500 extra sparklers from our wedding
I'm so excited for Monday!
I don't know what we will be doing yet, but I know it is going to be a great holiday!
Now, in the words of the Fresh Prince, I'm going to be "Chillin out max and relaxin by the pool"
Happy 4th of July!!
