Happy 4th of July (2012)

 For the first time, we went to the Singing Flag for 4th of July. We went with our friends, the Rossi's, and it was so awesome!  
 You have to come super early in the morning (i.e. whistle blows at 6AM) and nail blankets down in the grass. It's pretty crazy. And can you get more American? Stars, Stripes, and some chunky thighs.

They light up the flag, and have songs, dancing and basically a HUGE performance.
 After all the singing and dancing, they have the best fireworks show!
 This might be the first year that Ethan didn't cry throughout the fireworks. He really hates all the noise.
 Ethan and Riley Jo have been buds since Ethan was born!
It was a beautiful night! I even got teary-eyed several times throughout the program. I love that the program brought more meaning to the 4th of July for me. I'm so thankful for our freedom!
