Our 4th of July celebration

My family and I had such a lovely Fourth of July! We went to my father's house on the lake, had a BBQ and spent the day eating, laughing and talking. The kids did some fishing off the dock and then lit off some light fireworks and then when it got dark, we sat back and watched the show. Some of the people who live on the lake do a CRAZY fireworks show. Better than the ones I see put on by the cities. It's amazing how much people will spend on explosives! There were times when I didn't know where to look, there were so many displays. Then, tired and worn out, we drove home. So nice!!

  11. Was this the Lake Union show? I watched the last 30 seconds on tv and settled for our neighborhood show. I think the lake is the place to be on the 4th. What a great day!
