Hope you had a fun 4th.
Last night, as a fireworks afficianado, I can say that Austin's fireworks were breathtaking. Maybe it was the backdrop of rain clouds that set off the colors of the fireworks. Maybe it was the cool (!!) summer breeze that was blowing on us. Maybe it was because we left the house after 9pm, drove to Austin High School parking lot and had the easiest (zero minute) wait to see the show. Maybe it was that my kids are all old enough to say, "that was my favorite" after every single one. Maybe it was because we had just finished a swim party and bar-b-q at a wonderful neighbor's house. Maybe we were all still glowing from the parade around Bryker Woods earlier in the morning, when I discovered once again that our aging neighborhood has lots of young families moving in with tons of little kids.
Whatever the reason, it was a wonderful 4th for us.
