July 4th

The past couple weeks I took another break from my blog. Not sure why but I did.  So, to get back in the blogging swing of things I decided I would put up some pictures from July 4th and share a bit about what I did.

I started my July 4th going to church with my parents. Everything was fine until our church decided to honor the different branches of our military. I was a big, hot mess during all of that.  Big, hot mess = crying like a baby! My dad was in the Air Force, and both my grandfather’s served in the Army/Air Force.  So the military has always been a part of my family.  My dad stood during the Air Force hymn and of course I was  proud to be sitting there with him standing! Then I remembered both of my grandfathers and the emotional weight of it all caused me to be a blubbering mess for 10 minutes. I still get teary eyed.  I thought after that I wasn’t going to get through my day and evening with out crying even more! UGH… I do not like to cry in public.  The rest of the day though went on with out any more of that! 🙂

I went to a friends pool for a couple of hours and then headed to the Knights baseball game with my family and a couple of friends.  It was a great time! Here are some photos from the evening:

We finally got into the game during the second inning! But we had great seats!

I love the Fourth of July and yes, I am a hot mess on that day but it was so good to be around family and friends!

How did you celebrate the 4th?
