Fourth of July in Pictures...

Holidays are cause for big celebrations down here in the tight knit community of Balboa Peninsula.... and the Fourth of July is definitely the biggest. The town provides decorations for the kids and dogs, a local band, a huge parade, and a fabulous hot dog lunch. What fun everyone had dressing up in red, white, and blue!

We finished up the day with a big party up in the Tustin Hills where the kids swam, ate, and ran around until the wee hours of the night. We had an amazing view of at least 10 different fireworks going off at the same time.

With Matt leaving soon to Iraq, we're starting to feel a wee bit more patriotic... Hope you all had a great 4th. We sure did.

That's a lovely family photo! Enjoy your last few weeks with Dad/hubby in town. I can't imagine the mental prep that goes into saying goodbye like that. American is wonderful isn't it? I love the small town celebration you had.

Great photos. There's nothing quite like an All-American 4th of July, is there?

Thinking lots of good thoughts for all of you and holding you very close in my heart.
