We’re Home For The 4th Of July

I hope y’all had a great American Independence Day celebration on the 4th of July. I know that most of us were traveling and on vacation.  And watching fireworks display in famous landmarks around the country was irresistible.  Some of you who stayed home to celebrate the special occasion with family and friends, I bet had a great time like me.

My family and I just came back from our mini-vacation on July 2nd.  We only had a day to buy food and prepare for the 4th of July party in our home.  But my husband and I were calm and got everything.  Even we were tired from all the traveling, we were able to accommodate our guests on the 4th of July.  🙂  We shot fireworks and everyone had a great time visiting and celebrating America’s Independence Day.

Celebrating 4th Of July 2014

July 4th

My husband’s family came over for the 4th of July celebration at our house yesterday.  We are not in city limits so we still can shoot fireworks.  We love shooting fireworks.  We do it on New Year’s and on July 4.

Dear husband let me buy some fireworks with my brother-in-law and father-in-law.  The fireworks store was very busy.  Lots of people bought a bunch of fireworks.

Of course, on special occasions like this, my mother-in-law never forgets to bring pies.  Oh I love her blueberry pie.  My dear husband loves the pecan pie.

Some of our friends came all the way from out of town to celebrate America’s Independence Day.  We shoot fireworks at about 9:30 P.M. because it doesn’t get dark until then.  We had so much fun!  Everybody got to shoot a firework.

Day One: 4th Of July

Happy 4th of July, USA!

Again, our family is celebrating the occasion with home-made hamburgers, company, and fireworks.  It’s my fifth year celebrating the big event here in America!  Oh how time flies.

And my husband is on a day off today.  Yay!  We’ll have our 5-day weekend for the 4th of July.  And today is the Day 1.  I booked a hotel room accommodation in Broken Bow, Oklahoma.  We are going to visit the Beavers Bend State Park Resort where my husband and his brother went camping ten years ago.  It is one of the big national parks in Oklahoma around the Broken Bow Lake.  It is not gonna be a long tour but we will try to enjoy the place as much as possible.  We have to wake up early tomorrow to pack for the trip.

Well, Day One of our weekend is almost over.  We’ll shoot fireworks as soon as it gets dark tonight.  Days are longer in the summer here in the USA.  So probably at about 8:45 P.M. we can start shooting fireworks.

How about you?  What’s your plan this weekend?  If you’re going out-of-town, I hope you have a safe and wonderful travel.  Enjoy the weekend with family and good company.

From Slow To Busy

The store seemed quiet when I arrived yesterday morning. Yes. I had to work on July 4th. From ten o’clock in the morning until about past three o’clock in the afternoon yesterday, it was slow. But in the late afternoon until closing at 6:00 P.M., there was a rush of customers in the store. That was good because plenty of shopping was made by the customers. Seemed like they do not want to leave the store even if I made the five minutes after closing time announcement. Well, we closed at six o’clock in the evening yesterday.
