Happy 4th!

It's a day late but I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July! Our weekend involved a lot of games, family and friends, and some red, white, and blue. We took a hike and grilled out in the afternoon to celebrate the holiday.

We also played a lot of wiffle ball until a couple of the balls got trapped in the gutter.

It was a little odd having it on a Monday this year and having to go back to work/school the next day. Farmville had their fireworks display on the 3rd and Leesburg had theirs on the 4th, but since we had to drive back on Monday afternoon, unfortunately we had to enjoy the PBS special featuring D.C.'s fireworks instead of seeing any in person. Next year will be interesting since it's the middle of the week - we'll have to plan a little better!

Thanks to all out there that serve and have served our country, including my newly commissioned sis-in-law, Erika and newly commissioned cousin, Michael!
