Super simple page with amazing photos + a story. The same as other years. And different. It definitely wasn't the typical 4th of July for us as we were bombarded with some hellacious thunderstorms late afternoon and into the evening of the fourth. It was questionable we were even going to see a break in time for fireworks but,
We decided to brave the torrential downpours and dressed in rain gear for the occasion. We found parking easily, duh! Maybe, because there wasn't anyone on River Street. Keeping to our tradition we set up chairs and saved room (read: laughter here) for our friends to arrive. We were meeting up with some friends who needed the interaction and even though it was still raining light it was a good time. They have five kids and with our boys there for the companionship they were all good kids, waiting patiently for the fireworks.
Not surprising, God showed up. The rain and the storms cleared, the lower clouds moved east and the fireworks began.
