This year we happened to play it solo for Independence dayso we sat and thought about what would be fun to do. We normally either have company or drive to San Diego for our long weekend. This time around....it totally crept up on us. We had heard for the past almost 5 yrs about the fireworks that go on yearly at one of the high schools here in Clovis, CA so we decided this yr to give it a try. Little did we know that we were in for a treat!
Ameriacan Ambulance graciously gave everyone our very own flag to proudly wave!
Now that I've become a US Citizen I can truly celebrate and thank the Lord from the bottom of my heart for using this great country to bless me as well as my family with the opportunity to accomplish my dreams and goals, including meeting the love of my life, serving the Lord and becoming the person God intended me to be! I am a porud Costa Rica-American maybe nit by birth but in my heart! Every time I have to sing the national anthem I put my right hand over my heart and stare at that beautiful flag as I get teary for the wonderful things the Lord has done and is doing for this nation regardless of all the chaos mankind has created. We have the privaledge to live in a great nation!
My hubby new exactly what to do with the flags we got from the paramedics.....he creatively decorated his glasses.
Right after we took this pciture I turned around to point at a chucky little boy who looked so cute as he ran around when all of a sudden I felt a tiny hand grab me. In amazement I turned around and it was this beautiful little girl who was probably 3 or 4 and simply looked at me with big beautiful eyes and smiled! I as I began to talk to her she kept telling me, "that's my mommy" as she pointed her mommy's way. She wanted to find mommy a new friend lol. Mommy then smiled and waved at me. The little girl was so cute all dressed up in red, white and blue and even had a bit of chocolate around her mouth as she enjoyed her can dy bar. It was too cute! I continued to see her and her sister prancing around with neon bracelets and necklaces...very girly! My hubby did ask,"are you pregnant?" As I've told him that I've heard that when kids are drawn to you it could be because you're pregnant. Thing is.....kids have been drawn to me since I was like 10 lol. But ya never know......
Here we were excitedly awaiting the fireworks! We were really enjoying a sweet evening together....it was perfect. Great company, very inexenpensive ($10...vs $60 of storebought fireworks..it's always a blessing to find a bargain) a cool breeze was blowing (after a very hot day), had comforatble chairs, great snacks , a great game of cards, background music, cute kids playing around us, so happy to know we didn't have to pay an eye and an ear to see great entertainment and so ready to see a great show! It was actually quite romantic as my hubby held me in his arms while we enjoyed the fireworks! We couldn't believe we waited so long to see this show. We def plan on bringing our family if they're here for the 4th of July!
My effort to capture the awesome lights in the sky: ENJOY!
