I wanted to hurry and get an update out here before I start my new juggling act on Monday.  I’ll be back to working full time, with 4 kiddos, and baseball, and golf, and school, and homework, all the other fun stuff that I’ll have in the air.  ;)

The weekend before the 4th of July, there was a small Fair and a Celebration of Aiken County and Independence Day called Fire over Aiken.  After waiting for a few hours for the fireworks show, they announced that the storm earlier in the day and caused their computer to malfunction and the fireworks were canceled.
While we were waiting, we had fun though…

The next weekend, July 4th, we went to the Augusta RiverWalk.  We had Mexican food near the Savannah River and listed the brave Karaoke performers before heading down to the river.IMG_5441
The view was something like this when we made our way to the river bank.  Still not quite dark enough for fireworks….IMG_5486
Still waiting on the darknesss…IMG_5485
Almost time…Patience was wearing a little thin…IMG_5479
Almost dark!IMG_5484  It’s dark…and we’re still waiting… We’re afraid it may be a repeat of last week, when at 10:45pm they were cancelled…IMG_5480IMG_5498
But, no, we watched a spectacular fireworks show that lasted about 30-45 minutes.  No pictures because we had to hold kids up where they could see them because people rushed down in front of us blocking the view we had.

We got home a little after midnight.  As you can see, Taylor still had lots of energy!IMG_5524 IMG_5525 IMG_5530
