Yay for being Americans! I've always loved celebrating the 4th of July! So much good food, company, and fireworks! I also love Independence Day because it is so easy to forget how blessed we are as a country to have our freedom. So many other countries do not get to experience the freedom that Americans do. So God Bless America and thank you again to all the brave women and men who have, are, or will fight to defend our freedom!
Our 4th of July weekend was pretty relaxing. I finished up my first semester of classes on Thursday and we enjoyed doing much of nothing this past weekend. We went to a pistol range on Saturday. That was my first time shooting a handgun and it was pretty fun. My elbow was sore afterwards! We also went biking on Monday and finished the weekend watching the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular on TV. Our friend plays in the Army Field Band and the band was playing with the Boston Pops for this concert. Unfortunately, they never showed him or the entire band on TV but their fireworks were pretty great! We were going to go see the ones in Columbia but it started to rain right as we were about to leave so we decided to stay home.
I hope everyone out there had a great Independence Day weekend! We are heading to Baltimore for the weekend to celebrate our 1st anniversary so look for a post sometime next week and some pictures! Remember to be thankful for your freedom!
