Our 4th

Trey and Addie living it up on the 4th
The 4th of July has long been one of my favorite holiday...fireworks...summer...celebrating our freedom and everything good about our country.  This year further validated my love of the 4th...we spent the afternoon with close friends and family eating all sorts of amazing things (basically an appetizer dinner...my fave) and then we walked down to watch the fireworks with the rest of virginia beach...i tell no lies when i tell you there were thousands of people at our local park to watch the city fireworks...it was insane and a true test of one's patience but only one day a year so we celebrate the insanity.  I had some concerns about Addie...she doesn't like loud noises..they terrify her (i.e. the vacuum, lawn mower, blower..you get the picture) and we all know fireworks are noisy!  But that kid...she LOVED them...ate em up...wanted more...and more...and more.  We watched the NYC fireworks on TV when we got home and she's still asking daily for more fireworks...sorry, kid...its just once a year.  There sure is something magical about the good 'ole red, white, and blue and celebrating that is something special....
