Rain and Fire.....Don't Mix

We had a nice 4th of July. We spent the morning preparing for my dad and step-mom to come up for a visit. We are spending a few days with them here. Today we will be going out on the boat, if the weather holds.

I feel very bad for Eric. He had a great plan for our church for Independence Day. We were going to meet at the riverfront, cook hot dogs, share Jesus with others, and sing. It didn't work out. The rain kept us from meeting. The event had such great merit, but for whatever reason it wasn't meant to be. So, we hung out at home with my Dad and Wendy and debated politics and such. That convo didn't last long, since I hate debating.

Finally, we decided to attempt going to see the "bombs bursting in air". The show went on! We saw a great display! The kids kept those around us entertained with their "oohs, aahs, and WOWs!"

I'm looking forward to today. We will be going out on the boat on the St. Johns River. The kids are so excited.

I will share this experience when we return...................Melissa

Love the fireworks photos....sorry that the 'plan' didn't work out. Sounds like you had a good 4th, however.
We didn't end up seeing any fireworks...didn't seem like the 4th without them. Jacob ended up having a 5 hr. baseball practice.
Can't wait to see the pics from the river. Have a great day.
