Our tradition of Old Navy matching flag shirts continued even though we were in four different states. It is hard for me to get used to the fact, that we may not always get to be together for the holidays, but we can still continue on with our family traditions which keep us connected.
We had the most spectacular display of fireworks ever to be seen and we have seen them all over the U.S., but this topped it all. It was a beautiful setting over the lake. Our view on the grass hill next to the lake felt like they were just for us. It was a perfect night with a coolness left over from the mist of moisture we received. It was almost the perfect 4th, but I have to admit we all really missed having the whole family together.
