Fireworks: For our Troops

Yesterday morning, after sleeping in a bit late,
I went to church. I drove my car there.
Many people were there talking, singing, preaching, praying.
Spent time watching a silly movie with my family
 at one point yesterday,
Last night we went to see fireworks
(yes, they had them on July 3rd).
Today we celebrated the 4th by going
 to Adventureland, swimming and going on rides
(okay, watching my son go on rides as they make me sick).
Spent some time doing yardwork and then
playing a game with my family.

Simple days, yet I see all the freedoms
we have in the United States and how fortunate we are.
I know we take these things for granted, yet I also know
we are lucky to be living in the greatest nation on earth.

I am thankful to everyone who helped build this great
nation and those who still fight for our freedom today.
Thank you, God bless you, and may you come home safely
so you may also enjoy simple yet precious days with your family.

Here are some firework pictures I took last night.
I haven't tried firework pictures before so I wouldn't say they're
anything spectacular, but some had interesteing effects.
These are sent out especially to all our men and women serving
overseas who weren't able to be home to celebrate with fireworks.

Iowa: Storm Approaching

I went out of town to watch the storm clouds
 that were approaching, but still far off in the distance.
I love the sun shining on the back side
of the clouds, lighting up the farthest side.
The storms never did reach us on this particular night.
