We had our local Independence Day celebration on Saturday. Best part was that we had some rain in between festivities, so things were cooled off some. For the first time in my life, I was actually cool while watching the fireworks in Texas. Never before have I contemplated wearing a jacket to watch the fireworks except in Minnesota when we watched along the banks of the Mississippi River in St. Cloud (that was 2006 and still one of my favorite fireworks displays.) This is, by far, my favorite holiday (with Thanksgiving a close second and Christmas in third). I wonder what that says about me? I love this country and (in the words of our elementary school's prinicpal) our Founding Fathers rock. We're going to a neighboring city tonight to check out the fireworks there, too.
Have a great Fourth of July.
