Friends, Food, Fireworks, and Fun

We started our Fourth of July celebration a day early. First we went swimming (always a fun activity around our house), then Daddy grilled out yummy, yummy steaks! After getting our tummies full, we headed out to Joe Davis Stadium to watch their fireworks after the baseball game.

Then on Sunday, to start our Fourth of July celebration, we heard a great sermon at church. We then headed to Casa Blanca for an impromptu lunch since we were all starving. Nothing says Happy Birthday America like taquitos, chips, and salsa.:)
In the early evening our next-door neighbors came over to grill out hamburgers and hot dogs-now that's all-American food! After enjoying that delicious meal, we all headed to Dublin Park to get a good spot to watch the fireworks.

Here we are just waiting for the big show: Todd, Shelby, Meredith, Rush, Caitlin, Harrison, and Grayson. Do you see Randy in the background?

After the beautiful show, the Waggoners came back to our house where the kids had a "semi-sleepover." They were all in pajamas and laid on sleeping bags watching a movie. Except for Harrison--he fell asleep in the car on the way home.
We had such a great weekend celebrating with our friends!
Happy 4th of July!!
