Ron's mom and brother and sister-in-law were here for the holiday weekend. Sunday after church we all went to lunch with some family friends and then had a leisurely afternoon at home (and that is a big deal because there's been nothing leisurely about this particular summer!).
On the fourth, we slept in, had coffee, and then I slipped off to HOBBY LOBBY! They were having an incredible sale, and I needed a few things for our apartment and for Ava's upcoming birthday party. Then I hurried home to get ready for our city's festivities.
This is the fifth year that our church has been in charge of music at the City of Southaven Snowden Grove Amphitheater. Every year our church adds a new element. The event is a really fun way to spend the Fourth of July! This year, our church's barbeque team, The Cornerstone Crew, cooked and gave away a ton of hot dogs and hamburgers; our Generation NOW group was in charge of passing out water, and our kids' church gave away bubbles for the children. At 7 pm music began, and at 9-- the fireworks! Ava loved them. I only got a few pictures with my camera phone then copied it from Facebook (great quality;) because my digital camera needs charging- boo!
