4th of July Celebration

The Fourth of July falling on a Sunday just throws everyone out of whack, don't you agree?  Confusion as to when the official day will be celebrated with city fireworks to "it's Sunday so can't buy alcohol" (not a biggie, but still something to consider... preferably ahead of time )

We ended up going to a nearby parish (the one  which my mom and dad belong), meeting my parents and other families to sit on the open lawn.  This parish really does an amazing job with the 4th festivities.  There's a DJ (line dancing, hula hoop competition, etc.), grilled food for a small price, face painting for the kids, and tons and tons of families with their blankets, chairs, tents and tables dotted on the lawn.  

Kids riding their bikes, skateboards and scooters on the round-about (which was blocked off - :-), lots of ball and frisbee throwing.  Just real vibrant!  It's really awesome!

My absolute favorite shot of the night...

Hope your 4th was just as awesome! 
 God bless America!
