There will be fireworks tonight,
and they will no doubt be beautiful.
But after a very hot day,
God brought a much-needed rain to our area,
and this photo shows how the sky looked afterwards.
Even though Mark's head is cut off in this photo, (Oops, sorry, Mark!)
this is Mark, Maya and Ben in the kids' parade in our neighborhood.
Maya and Lauren by our flag...
Benjamin feeding himself chocolate ice cream...
Maya enjoying her ice cream
It was a wonderful day to celebrate our nation's birthday,
to remember why we celebrate it,
and to be reminded Who our nation is under.
