Fourth of July Fun

We have hardly ever celebrated our nation's birthday at home and not because of a love for fireworks all over the US...mainly, it's one less vacation day to take.  Those were precious in my working days.  I took a little trip down memory lane to see just how long it's been since we were in town...2005.  We had just come home from our honeymoon.

It was a nice change to be in town, even extending the holiday a day early with an overnight to Casa Crawford Senior.  It's Crawford family tradition to put on a "Lame Fireworks show," a first for our family.  It was scheduled a day early, purchased from a grocery store and properly displayed during daylight hours.

There was a moment of fear at the awe-inspiring fireworks.  She was then accompanied by Grandma to the farthest point of the viewing area.  
The rest of the show was all smiles.

We held a simple picnic at Grandma and Grandpa's pool for the fourth.  It was a scorcher of the day so we were in the water more than we were out.  Billy even dusted off his swim teachin' skills and gave Lauren a private lesson.

We were both extremely proud of our beach chairs.  He simply enjoyed a chair his size, I was full on salesman for our Tommy Bahama beach chairs.  It's a backpack, cooler, and chair.  But who wants to spend $84 when you can get it for the bargain price of $26.99 at Costco!  

We had a great day!  I'll let the pictures tell the rest of the story.
