I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday. I know that we had a ton of fun today. We started the day off at a Boy Scout pancake breakfast. It was a camp fundraiser. I must say that they put a heck of a lot less effort in to it than the girls did for their fundraiser. The pancakes were not even cooked fully so they were not very good. We went to the grocery store and got doughnuts after we left because we were still hungry. We saw a few people that were at the pancake breakfast doing the same thing.
The rest of the morning and afternoon was spent at home. We grilled some steaks and had a nice dinner. Later in the evening we went to the house of some people that we know from church. They invited a ton of people to come and watch the fireworks from their house because they have front row seats from their lawn. To see them otherwise would have cost a lot of $$.
Both of the kids were entranced by the display. Evan's favorite word is wow, so he already had the vocabulary to express his delight. Harry got a bit scared at the end when there was a lot of loud bangs. Both boys were extremely tired when we got home and went right to bed. Tomorrow is back to the grind stone.
It is nice to have a chance to reflect on how lucky we are to live in this country. We have a lot of freedoms that many people can only dream of. We also have a very good standard of living in this country. I am glad that I was born here and get to enjoy the great things that this country has to offer.
