Apparently the fourth celebrations can be extended till July 16th. Work with me people 🙂
After our very first country-town parade, we hopped in the car (some of us were very adament about putting on our own sunglasses – guess he took “Independence Day” very literally) and headed to my parents house for the rest of the holiday.
My mom had the spread. Of course, it was delicious…and totally calorie free. It’s a holiday afterall 🙂
My mom also had the table set heavy-laden with American cheer 🙂
My favorite part of the food was the desert. I remember seeing this all over Pinterest. My mother has no idea how to google things so I highly doubt she saw it on Pinterest….so obviously what I am getting at is my mother is a genius…
Oh did I mention my little brother came. We were looking at the backyard (my parents are getting a pool put in right now) and the entire thing is red with Georgia clay.
After we ate, pool-sighted and generally lolly-gagged….we decided to go see the fireworks at the Snellville Spectacular. We all parked our cars in a church’s parking lot and sat on lawn chairs and the back of the trucks redneck style. My dad was laughing because we had just asked what we should do and Will volunteered “ice ceam”….that isn’t misspelled – that’s how he says it. And so we did.
We were close enough to Brusters to pick up a half gallon of our favorites and ate in the dark while waiting for the show to begin.
It actually turned out pretty awesome. I googled ‘how to photograph fireworks’ while they started the show so that I could try to capture them. Dude. That’s rough….firework photography….it’s very complicated. I think I should leave it to the pros.
Will absolutely loved it. The people in front of us were laughing because the entire time he kept on saying WOW! Oh WOW! Oh WOW! FIAHWOKS WOW!
I wish I had it on video because dare I say that it was the cutest fireworks soundtrack I’ve ever heard.
Overall, it was a great day….weird that it was a Wednesday…but fun way to spend Hump Day 🙂 Now I am off to the pool….hope you guys are staying cool out there!
