A Not Very "Fourthy" Fourth

I sort of failed to post about the 4th of July. I didn't really forget, I just didn't have much to share. It didn't seem very "Fourthy" around here. We headed south of Nashville to a guy who works with Brent and his families home. The kids swam in their pool and we cooked out, but we were run inside when it started raining. We had a good time and headed home after dinner. We were driving through the middle of Nashville during the downtown firework show. It is suppose to be one of the top 4 shows in the country. It was quite impressive from what we could tell, watching while driving down the interstate in the rain. It was actually a rather good view from there and there were cars lined up bumper to bumper on the shoulder of the interstate. We had fireworks of our own to do (we don't live in city limits), but it was still pouring when we got home, so we basically went to bed. So not much of a festive day, with all the rain. Nearly every night for the next week there was a informal neighborhood show as everyone was doing their fireworks they couldn't do on the 4th.

Here is the only picture I have of the weekend, the kids in their festive colors.

Sounds like a good time, even with the rain and the drive by fireworks show.
