Yesterday, we celebrated a little unconventionally. We chose to forego the cookout and watermelon (even though I could seriously eat my weight in watermelon). Instead, we parked the truck in a good spot to watch fireworks, then walked to one of our favorite restaurants for some chicken and the best ice cream. We met our friends back at the truck to wait on the firetruck parade and fireworks, and it was perfect.
Last year, Jane and I were both huge pregnant, days away from having babies, and lived a 20 hour drive from each other. It was pretty special to celebrate the 4th with her this year as our boys played together and we held our babies and our husbands joked around.
I hope you had the best 4th, celebrating FREEDOM with your families and friends!
