July 4, 2011

Independence Day this year was pretty quiet for us. The best part about it was that we were able to be together! YAY! I think it was the first holiday that we had spent together ALL YEAR!! Crazy, huh?
Well, to celebrate we went to what we refer to as "the farm" to see my Dad and Phyllis. We had considered going to Elizabeth City to watch the fireworks, but we have discovered that in this area anything you go to is just SO CROWDED! You have to fight through people and around people to get where you are going. Traffic is always horrible when you're trying to get there and even worse when you are leaving. We just didn't want to the headache this year. So being in rural North Carolina was just perfect for us! My Dad barbecued some delicious food, and we gratefully filled out bellies, played some good ol' Monopoly, and lit off a few small fireworks. Just old fashioned family time. Best way to celebrate our freedoms: spending time with those you love and just knowing that what we have is special. Not everyone in this world gets that privilege.

The fireworks weren't the most spectacular, but they did the job. It didn't help that it was sprinkling.

It was hard to get a good picture of Alex lighting the fireworks with my phone. This is one of the best ones.

The Monopoly King!! (He gets really cranky if he's losing!)

I wish that was REAL money!! But realistically there is no money in real estate these days. :)

My handsome husband, my awesome Daddy, and wonderful Phyllis!! :) Love you guys!
