4th of July

We had a blast for the fourth. It was a full weekend celebration. We started out on friday in Collinsville, Ok at Sarah (Tims sister) and Andy's house. We had pizza there then took a shuttle to the park. Who knew this little town had such a fabulous park! It was amazing. It was a small fireworks show but nice. The kids in front of us had us cracking up. One of them said to the other that the fireworks had to sick if you were color blind. So out of the kindness of their hearts, they proceeded to scream the color of every firework. Afterward we let the kids play in the park while the adults shuttled back to get the cars.
The next night we went to Claremore Lake. It was fabulous. The breeze of the lake kept us cool plus the view is so pretty. Just before the show was to start, the neighborhood across the lake did a show and it was incredible. After they were finished Claremore started theirs. Best show I have ever been to. There were some I had never seen before. We will for sure go back next year.

Finally, for the fourth, we just stayed at the farm and had a cookout. Grilled pork chops, grilled corn on the cob, pasta salad and fresh tomatoes from the grill. My brother Josh and his little family came. The night ended with him and Tim putting on a small fireworks show and letting all the kiddos run around with sparklers. Overall, probably one of the best 4 ths to date.
