A Star Spangled Trip

We traveled north of the Red River for the 4th of July holiday. Ricky wanted to spend some time with the family (aka GOLF) so we took off Sunday for a week of fun in the big town of Stroud, America. We had a great time visiting with everyone. We spent the days shooting fireworks and cooking out.

It had been SOOOO long since we had even seen fireworks(we never could seem to locate the best spot for them here in FW and the traffic is horrendous!) much less shoot them off. And shoot them off we did! Hayden and Skylor had so many fireworks that it looked like a fireworks stand at Granny and PaPa's!

The first night Hannah wasn't even phased by them. The next night she ducked like she was avoiding gunfire in a drive-by! She LOVED the sparklers that Aunt Sarah helped her with. She would just shake, shake, shake! When she found an unlit one, she started to shake it and then realized it wasn't doing much. Off she went to find Uncle Josh (who was in charge of the lighting) so he could fix her up.

Thanks to everyone for a fabulous 4th! See you next year!
