Stars & Stripes

Life continually amazes me. I have been sitting back in awe, and just thinking how such a bad time happened at THE best time. I am not sure if there really could have been a "best" time, but if there was one June 27th would have been it. My family had been planning on coming down for the fourth of July for a long time. It could have not been more helpful or more needed. Just having my sisters there really helped me heal, and realize how blessed I truly am. The fourth of July is one of my favorite Holidays, and this year was by far one of the best. My sisters and I got to go shopping, and the boys got to go shooting. We took the kids to the splash pad. Ate yummy food, and best of all ended the night with a boom...FIREWORKS!! The show this year was out of this world. For me to say that is HUGE. I have a preference to Coronado Island's fireworks, but these were right up there. There were a total of 3 fireworks around us. We got there kinda late, and we were nervous we may not find a spot. Little did we know, we found THE best spot. Right in front of the launch pad haha. We put our blankets down, and could not believe we were so close. Not only close, we would not have to worry about tons of crowds while leaving. The kids had a blast. Sydney, and Kailey are really beginning a bond. It is so fun to watch them play. Of course the girld are girls, and have there moments, but at the end of the day they are buds! Sadie LOVED the fireworks, and I could not get enough of her face throughout the show. She was trying so hard to keep her eyes open, but with how close we were they were pretty loud so she kept blinking. She had the biggest smile on her face, and kept clapping. Sydney on the other hand was TERRIFIED of them. Which shocked me, because last year she was just like Sadie, I guess it comes with the age. William came prepared, and brought shooting headphones. That way the fireworks would not be so loud. He even told Kailey she could wear them, but as soon as the show started he decided he wanted them back!!! Kailey was as scared as Sydney, but I think she actually fell asleep. It was so much fun watching all the shows around us. It really made me proud to be an American! Having my sister's over was awesome. We all just pitched in, and got things done. I hope one 4th of July all of my family will get to be together.
