Happy Independence Day!

Happy 4th of July!

We have been busy celebrating America's Independence the past few nights by attending local fireworks.

Friday night we went to downtown Columbus and watched Red, White and Boom. We pack a picnic dinner, people watch (even played people watching Bingo), and then watched the fireworks

Ever since we were little, we packed my Radio Flyer wagon to carry all of our stuff down to the fireworks.. and we still use my Radio Flyer to carry our stuff down to the fireworks - however in the few short 27 years... we have outgrown the trust worth wagon... so now we look like nothing more than the beverly hillbillies rolling down the street with our wagon (that happens to include 2 coolers, a radio to listen to the soundtrack for the fireworks, and two bag chairs) all tied down with a boating line and 2 bungee cords!

Here's my dad pulling ol' trustee and Justin helping him get under construction fencing - I had to laugh!
JM and I waiting for the fireworks
and this years fireworks did not disappoint!

Last night we went to my hometown's fireworks, which are nice, but nothing compared to red, white and boom... a MUCH smaller scale. We went up with Justin's mom, watched them from a parking lot and headed home
(i do however love that the sky is red white and blue in this picture!)

We have been beyond fortunate with perfect weather -80 degrees during the day, getting down to the low 60's at night and no humidity! We're off on the boat for the rest of the day!

I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful 4th of July!!!
