So the fireworks are three fold.
One- this is my 100th post! Yea!!!!
Two- Our apartment complex seems to think that the 4th of July isn’t recognized enough so they are starting the celebrating on June 18th. I drove in this morning and saw on the little welcome sign they’ve put up “Happy 4th of July!”
I think the whole birth of a nation thing is cool and all (I still cry at Lee Greenwood…. that could be the excessive fringe and facial hair though) but come on people.
And Three- I miss St. Louis. I need to make a trip up to see the parents soon. Every once in awhile you just hit that “I really need to hang out with my mom for a while” point.
(total sidenote: I looked at the picture and realized that that is the statue/fountain where we took pictures after our wedding. I almost busted my ass running through the empty (except for the puddles from the torrential rain the night before) fountain in my worn out crocs. There are pictures floating around somewhere of both my brother and my brother in law hanging from that statue and standing up there next to the running man- good times)
So Happy 4th of July everyone!
