As I am creating this post, I am still thinking of the 5-day weekend we had for the 4th of July last week. We had a blast celebrating USA’s Independence Day at home. My husband’s parents traveled from Tyler to celebrate the special occasion with us. They haven’t done shooting fireworks for years so that was a great experience for them again. My brother-in-law and his wife came over, too, as usual but this time their son didn’t come with them. He had other plans. 🙂 My sister-in-law’s mom wasn’t able to come with them because there’s a special event held at the retirement community where she resides.
Also, our friend from Plano and her family came over to share the fun and enjoyment of the occasion. My husband and I were very happy to have them. Everyone brought delicious foods to share. Our friend brought my favorite Filipino dish, Kare-Kare. It reminded me of my college friend’s mom, who is now living in a retirement home in Atlanta. She also makes the most delicious Kare-Kare in the world. 🙂 I miss her.
The day isn’t complete without lots of talks. Catching up with everybody is very special because this is the time we learn about each other’s ideals. Traveling and vacation to Hawaii is what our friend and her family is preparing for. They will be spending 10 days in Hawaii that includes visiting the beautiful island of Kaua’I. Oh, that would be very exciting! I feel like going with them. 😀 My husband’s parents, brother, and sister-in-law are also planning to have a vacation and a tour in Asia in the next couple of months. So wonderful! Now I can say that I am so looking forward to our next long vacation.
Well, it was a wonderful celebration of the 4th of July as always. We got to shoot fireworks in our area. And I love it! Yummy foods…colorful fireworks…great company.
