Independence Day Weekend

The 4th of July is one of our very favorite holidays. This year we just stayed at home to save our vacation days because in September we are using a ton of vacation days to go to CHINA!!!

We went to a friends house for a 4th of July party...complete with great people, great food, and a HUGE firework setup! Travis was the host of the party...he is the one in the left in the picture below.

Fireworks are a big deal at Travis' house. He has a list of all of the fireworks he bought, and then he rates each one as it is shot off. I thought it was pretty hilarious.

It was so much fun to have Travis' kids around. I love the fun spirit that kids bring to any holiday.

The only safety incident we had was that a firework tip over on it's side and just about kill all of us... or so we thought. Luckily no one was hurt. I still can't believe that firework didn't do any damage!

All in all, it was SUCH a great weekend. We had so much fun relaxing and just hanging out together. We watched movies, played games, shopped, and enjoyed each others company. It was SO hot and sticky the whole weekend. We are feeling the heat in these pictures, but always still manage to have fun even with the hot weather of Arkansas!

We can hardly wait until next year's celebration! -SL
