Our Fourth of July week got off to a good start last night! We went to see the USAF Band of Liberty, which my cousin Mickey plays clarinet in. We had gone to their Christmas concert back in early December, but this was even better. And being outdoors made it nicer for the kids when they got wiggly, too. :) We had a wonderful time and it was a really good concert. A trio called the "American Belles" performed with them, and sang a lot of Andrews Sisters songs from the 1940s. It was a lot of fun, and we came away feeling very patriotic!

Julia was entertaining the people behind us. :)

Someone down the road is shooting off fireworks tonight. I think we will take the kids to a parade tomorrow, and then hopefully to some fireworks tomorrow night. We also plan to have a cookout with my parents for lunch. Should be a fun day! Hope everyone has a wonderful Fourth of July!!
