“Happy Birthday, America!!”


Tutu Cute

Late tonight, as we made our way home from the fireworks show, I must have said to Adam “I had such a great time today”; about ten times. Today really was quite perfect and we all had a great Fourth of July.

This is our third Independence Day in Ames, but we had not yet experienced the downtown Fourth of July activities. We woke up to rainy weather but decided to go watch the parade anyway. It rained on us the entire time, but we didn’t let it bother us, and we had a lot of fun.


We did other various holiday activities throughout the day, and then joined a large group of friends for the Ames fireworks show. Megan had such a wonderful time running around and experiencing sparklers for the first time. She loved watching the fireworks and was in such a great mood. I so enjoyed watching her excitement as each firework “popped”. She was so happy and so much fun.

There is nothing that makes me happier than spending time with my sweet girl and wonderful husband. Throw in a whole hearted celebration of this great nation I call home and I guess all I need to say is…

“I had such a great time today”!
