I don’t know if you’ve ever seen fireworks in Texas, but let me tell you, they’re something to see. After all, everything is bigger in Texas!
Have you ever seen fireworks in Illinois? My, oh my...they're something to see as well! :) Though, far smaller (at least the one's that ppl without licences can use)...
Okay, okay, lol, don’t feel too bad, my dear Illinois friends, they were pretty funny...
Just kidding! :) The small-town fireworks were great. And driving home from the celebration we did happen to see some more amazing fireworks as well...
Anyway, our dear friends, the Sanford’s, hosted the Fourth of July party for Providence Church this year and it was a delightful evening filled with Ultimate Frisbee, Volleyball, laughter, food, singing, speeches (Ashton read the Declaration of Independence), and fun and games. It was a wonderful Independence Day.
Unfortunately, our dumb old camera…sorry *ahem* our dear unintelligent camera deleted almost half of our pictures, so we don’t have as many as I’d like (for instance, of the games), but I’m sure if you check out Ashton's, David's or the Candler’s blogs you’re likely to discover some photos (ok, hopefully you will).
Christa and Daniel are visiting us in Illinois for a few days, which is lovely. They attended the Fourth of July Celebration with us as well! We were also pleased to find out that Christa’s expecting (enceinte-in French!)!!! I’ve been thinking of good "aunt names"…How about “Aunty Jessica”? Or “Aunt Jess” or something catchy like that? lol.
Also, we just got back from a trip to Alabama a few days ago. It was wonderful to see our friends there…the Chanceys, the Keens and the Turleys. As well as some new friends!! It was soooo nice to be in the sweet land of Dixie again!! :D
Hmm…wow, I was expecting this post to be a lot longer than it is….oh well!
Happy…um…Happy National Ice Cream Month!!!
