July 4th Festivities (Photos)

Late. As always.

We went to the Symphony in the Park at Southpark Thursday night, where they did an American tribute and had fireworks afterwards. Awesome show. Except we couldn't get close enough to even see the orchestra. We were across the street and behind some trees. But the kids had fun, and we got to hang out with the Gallers. The main attraction was watching Ian and Leah roll down the hill repeatedly, either delighting or annoying the hell out of everyone else around us.

On Friday, Angelle made everyone some mean shepherd's pie and patriotic berry trifle, and then we went to the Larsen's church's farm out in the middle of nowhere, SC, to set off our own fireworks. It was the 3 culdesac families- Larsens, Gallers, and us, and it was really nice to just relax by the fire (with s'mores!), listen to Mike play the guitar, and watch Brandon and Bryan play pyrotechnics.

Happy 4th!
