Happy 4th of July!!!
i am so thankful for our freedom & for the men and women
who have sacrificed for us.
i am so proud to be an american
& pray that i never take that for granted.
we are enjoying a little familytime
apparantly with a gazillion other folks...
the beach is packed!
would i sound like a local if i said
that i hope most of these folks are daytrippers
& will head out after the festivities?
we've eaten shrimp po' boys
( my fave)
and dined at The Red Bar.
watched some fireworks
& loved on Emi with her boot cast.
turns out her ankle is broken.
we will get the full report, probably tomorrow
& then follow up with orthopedics when we get home.
for now we are trying to love on her & clank our half full glasses
to the fact that while she must wear the boot cast
it could be so much worse.
my goal for the day
will be to quickly get a grip on my shutter speed
so i can take some respectable fireworks shots tonight.
last night they had a quickie display
but tonight we'll watch them from our porch!
enjoy your holiday
thank you immensely for praying for my girl!
