Family, a Fire Hazard, and Firecrackers From Our Backyard

We enjoyed the 4th of July with family at our house yesterday, in which we decided to avoid the late night traffic and not go out to see the fireworks. Somehow, it has never quite felt like my birthday without ending it with fireworks yet, it still sounded so much more peaceful just to stay home this year.


Yes, it was also my birthday yesterday. Robby insisted that we have as many candles on the cake as my age -- yeah, that was a fire hazard! Go ahead, count them...

What's that??? You only counted twenty-nine? Close enough. :)

We had a beautiful sunset last night as the day turned to evening...

and evening turned to night...

And to close the night, we were pleasantly surprised to be able to see the Equestrian Center display of fireworks from our own back yard! They were a little better than what my camera could capture, but there they are!

How did you spend your 4th of July?


  1. Hope your Birthday was as awesome as you are.

  2. Happy Belated Birthday!! It sounds like a blessed day :)

  3. Happy Birthday, dear friend! God outdid Himself when He created you :)
