God Bless America

While a lot of Georgia folk did not get to see fireworks on the Fourth this year due to bad weather, our neighborhood had their display on my birthday and we got to see them!  I love fireworks and that my birthday is so close to the Fourth to make it feel like part of the celebration.  My cousin Jonathan and his fiance, Mollie, came up to watch with us.  They are now in St.Louis where they will be starting their lives together and wanted to say good-bye to the kids.  We had such a fun time even though the fireworks didn't start til 10!  That is one disadvantage to living in the Eastern Time Zone.  Anyway, here are some pictures from our evening.

 Yes, she is wearing a Valentine's shirt.  I had a Hello Kitty red,white, and blue shirt on her but she needed to put this on after being asked to be in Jonathan's and Mollie's wedding!!
 The line across his forehead?  He did that on the water slide bouncy the neighbors rented for the party we went to beforehand.

 Fireworks can be loud, but oh so pretty!  For those of you who didn't get to see any, I'm sorry.  So thankful to live in a country where we are free to celebrate our country and those who have fought for our lives.  God Bless America!!
