the fourth: a look back

In honor of this being the weekend of my favorite holiday and the end of my week long trip down memory lane I thought I would share photos from our last few fourths.

Mabry's first fourth of July.  We celebrated by walking in the parade in Steilacoom and then BBQing with a whole bunch of friends and then watching the fireworks from a hill overlooking the sound. This could easily be one of the best days on record if you ask me.

The first fourth of July here in North Carolina we opted to have a bunch of friends over for a BBQ and setting off hundreds of dollars worth of fireworks in the cul-de-sac in front of our house.  This night ended with Dan soaking wet in a kiddie pool full of ice.

Last year's fourth was a total bust.  We went to watch the fireworks on Fort Bragg and were totally unprepared for the heat or to keep Mabry entertained.

We left before the fireworks started.  However, we were able to catch the artillery shooting the cannons off which was pretty cool (and loud.)

Hoping 2011 brings you all a happy, safe and memorable 4th.
