I've been meaning to tell you, that although I didn't get to celebrate the 4th properly, it enabled me to see how those around me do it! And boy do they do it up!! I had gone to the library to study on Saturday morning, but Brian texted me this photo from his phone that was taken from our bedroom window (peeking across the neighbors yard)...
Little did we know that this ginormous blow-up slide would be the start of a huge 4th of July celebration!! When I finally got home from the library, this thing was covered in kids! And there was a huge cook-out happening as well, but within a few hours the slide's rental period was up, and there were (I'm sure) tons of tired and disappointed children.
However, this was just the beginning of a 3-day party complete with 'slow down' signs out in the road and fireworks set off one at a time throughout the evenings. In fact, it is Thursday, and we've still heard fireworks every night this week from various directions around the neighborhood!
