We had a super great Saturday celebrating our nation’s independence. It gloriously started with J sleeping in till 9, which put us getting out the door a little later than expected, but nonetheless perfect. We picked up some lunch and carried it out to a picnic bench at our neighborhood’s “old-fashioned” 4th celebration, equipped with old cars, carnival games and yummy food. There were also some great bluegrass and Jazz bands playing. This was our second year attending. Check out last year here (and we got another shot with the same old car you’ll see later)

So after all of that fun we headed back home for a good ole nap, which didn’t really impede on any fun because the rain was doing that all on its own. It rained last year too but this year it actually made things nice and cool. We were worried that the rain would make all the firework shows be cancelled, including our own personal show, but alas, our friends in Shelbyville had a little dry spot so the festivities continued!

 

Very fun and interested

We didn't have any fountains so a bunch of sparklers taped together worked for us.

In Kentucky ground fireworks and sparklers are legal, over in Indiana anything goes. David works over there and he said that they were selling small sticks of dynamite….3 for the price of 1… um, okay….
