4th of July

One of my favorite days of the year. Second only to Thanksgiving. This 4th of July was no exception. Swimming at my sister's, having several over for dinner, going to Aubrey's, and watching fireworks over Lake Granbury.

and having a friend in town, WOO HOO.

So I started thinking about past 4th of July's... where we would sing on the float in the parade for what seemed like HOURS... but it was always fun... and hot.

And one where I was in California at July camp without my family (wayyyy too young, too), watching fireworks with Liz, Tiff, James (yelling "Weak Sauce!" after every single one), and lots of my other friends...

Doing a scavenger hunt at Drex and Beth's all around the neighborhood. I still think all the neighbors were secretly annoyed with us...

Watching fireworks with Derek and Jill, and Rog and Kara, and Kara and I missing almost the whole thing because we had to walk down the street to find a bathroom. So fun. Ppppbbbbtttt.

And last year, when all of Dad's friends and family stayed up and waited until midnight to ambush him and drag him away to a birthday party (his is on the 5th) that lasted until 2:30 or 3:00 the next morning...

And Aunt Jo wearing an APRON over sweat pants (her idea of making it modest??) and holding a pointer stick to try to direct musical chairs. I really need to dig up the picture of that.

I'm so lucky to have such awesome friends and family to party with...
