Happy 4th Of July!

I love having three day weekends!  I love the holidays that afford us to do that.  Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays.  I'm proud to be an American and I am so thankful to the men and women who make the sacrifice everyday to keep America what it is today, a free country.
It was my turn to stay late at work on Friday.  I didn't get out until almost 5 and got the biggest surprise when I got out, all I can say is we have great best friends who love us.  Thank you Cody and Tara!!
We headed over to Cody and Tara's house after I got off and had a delicious steak BBQ, and then headed out to go get some fireworks and to go save our spot for the fireworks that night.  Dr. Welter took us 3 girls out to Mo Bettah' Steaks for lunch and we had the BEST authentic Hawaiian shaved ice!  Oh my gosh, those things are a delicious piece of Heaven.  It's not like the shaved ice at those little roadside rainbow booths either.  So after we got some of our fireworks, we took the boys to go get another one, and they were not disappointed either!
We went back to our spot we picked out at the church to watch the fireworks.
Cody and Josh got the poppers out and started throwing them at Atty's back and they popped so they had a competition to see who could pop the most off his back.
Tara brought cards to play Sevens to pass the time waiting for the fireworks.  I had never played before and am not much of a game player but that game was fun.  Then the fireworks started.
 They were beautiful!!  We laughed so much and had such a fun night.
