The 4th of July

The first week of July was great. Very relaxing, enjoyed family time, and of course fireworks and Independence Day! Seth's Dad and Becky were at our house visiting for the week. We had a great time! On Thursday, July 3rd, we went to San Angelo for an evening of San Angelo Pops in the Park complete with an orchestra-accompanied fireworks display. It was something Seth and I have always wanted to do for the 4th of July. The music was wonderfully patriotic and the fireworks were spectacular. We had tickets for reserved seats only 4 rows away from the orchestra! They also honored our veterans--including Seth and his Dad who each served in the Army. Jordan & Hunter enjoyed the show very much, but thought the very REAL canons that were fired throughout the show were a little too loud. The weather was a little hot and sticky at first, but after the threat of a thunderstorm passed, the temperatures cooled and a slight breeze kicked up. All in all, it was a great July 4th weekend!

How fun! I heard about the fireworks and orchestra show from Mom, and it sounds so awesome. Kevin and I are hoping that in the future we can come over for a Texan 4th of July. :)
