The 4th was a blast back here at our place. We started the day off with a parade that went through the Town Center, then a swimming and BBQ party all day at our place. We ended the day with watching the fireworks across the lake from our home (some nice people had a lovely fireworks show from fireworks they'd purchased on an Indian reservation). We had the "safe and sane" you can buy, which I have to say I don't think are all that safe, or sane.
We missed last July 4th living in Mexico, and it was so nice to be back! I hope all my American friends had a nice Independence Day, too!
