This year we went to Otis (15 min away) for the 4th of July fireworks! It was probably one of the best 4ths we've had while living here! We got there two hours before the fireworks started. We set up our chairs and blankets in a baseball field. It was so nice to watch kids play football or to toss the football around while waiting for it to get dark. Jer brought his fireman gear just in case they needed his help with something.
Dallas loved the fireworks! I kept hearing him say ooo that looks like a tree mom, or some kind of animal! We all cracked up because Dal was laying with Ty and he all of a sudden turned right up into Ty's face and said "Did you see that!" Lol!
Mase had a blast with Carter and Even (a boy from his class last year). They wrestled and ran around like wild animals. It was so nice! We will definitely make Otis our regular 4th of July spot!
I just love this time of year! The BBQs, friends and family and celebrating! It is exactly why we celebrate our Freedom right? To be able to party and enjoy one another's company to live in this free land. If we didn't have that, there would be nothing to celebrate or the sense of community wouldn't be there like it was that night. We all felt part of something important and special because we all live in this land that is protected every day by brave men and women who fight to keep our children free. To allow them the right to make memories of BBQs and football and fireworks on Independence Day!
