We had a great Fourth of July. Some friends joined us for swimming, eating hot dogs and pie, playing in the backyard, and watching fireworks. Gavin of course loved having all the friends around to play with. He also loved the fireworks, becoming so excited that he ran around giving everyone hugs. I think he also liked the staying up way past his bedtime part. We didn't shoot any fireworks ourselves, but there were plenty going off around our house. We all stood in the front yard and pretty much turned in circles as they went off in every direction. There were even some small ones going off in our cul-de-sac, reminding me of our 4th of Julys on Shiloh Court when I was little. Except without the bottle rockets.
