There may be one thing better than the 4th of July. The weekend after the 4th of July. Yes, you heard me right. The weekend after. It's like the 4th of July's appendage... or its big brother. It's an encore to all of the fun that I had the previous weekend! Complete with an amazing fireworks display that I wouldn't even be able to begin to justify by posting pictures.
Every year my family attends a fireworks celebration at Sugar Mill Lake. There is food. There are fireworks. There is a golf cart parade. Oh yes, a golf cart parade.
All of the kids scramble for candy and trinkets in the 95 degree heat. It's fun. Really.
Truthfully its all about family. And friends. And pie.
My grandmother prepares a feast that is concluded with pie. Raspberry, peach, apple, and strawberry. A 4th of July tradition... oh sorry... 9th of July. Mmmmm.... Theres also a lot of cold beer, cornhole, card playing, napping, and just plain being with family.
I hope you had a Happy 9th of July!
