(Photos circa last year)
I am actually really sad to admit that I didn't get to see a single firework this 4th of July. This makes me extremely sad because fireworks are like my favorite thing ever. I spent the day playing kickball, eating freedom toast (french toast), finally getting to see Moonrise Kingdom, eating brisket, watching Independence Day, and playing Halo. The last one was not by choice. Unfortunately I spend my time with a bunch of guys who would rather play Halo than go see fireworks. I don't know how may times I said "Ugh. So bored." that night. Probably more than I can count. I also said "Stop killing me" just as much because I am terrible at Halo and they kept killing me because they knew I couldn't kill them even if they stood still.
Anyways... Today I am leaving for Austin. We are having a little family get together at my aunts house. It will be nice to see all of the family again. I haven't seen some of my relatives in years! I am looking forward to relaxing in the pool, good food, and family time. I'm hoping there will be fireworks somewhere. If I don't forget to get out my camera, there will be photos to come.
How was your 4th? What are you doing this weekend?
