Well, it almost happened the way we planned. We never did actually get to go swimming--in fact, we kind of substituted it with shopping, which I was pretty ok with. But there was thankfully no change of plans in the menu--we totally got to eat steak and the very best baked potato I've ever had in my entire life. We then wrapped up the evening watching some fireworks at the Shelley's.
I love living in the USA and being an American citizen. I am so grateful that we were able to celebrate Independence Day with our friends and family, and I hope that God continues to have his hand on our country.
Independence Day is not New Years, but if it were, I would make a resolution to wear more makeup. I spent the entire weekend bare-faced. Sorry, brand new husband.
In advance, the only good pictures I took were the outdoor/food ones, so I hope you're not reading this hungry...
Dad loves hot dogs more than steak.
Married feet :)
Fireworks can be an amusing distraction from playing with a milk jug.

Hope everyone had a nice 4th!
