The 4th of a July has always been a big holiday for us. I remember waking up early to decorate "the truck" and the many different places I've sat at to watch the parade, even though it starts literally outside my front door. This year I even volunteered at the cotton candy machine , which as it turns out is a HUGE mess. Then we BBQ and nap, and later watch fireworks in the Oak Hills Neighborhood. Here it is again in pictures!
