Independence Day Shenanigans

I spent America’s Independence Day swimming, eating and enjoying fireworks with family as usual.

My aunt hosts 4th of July at her house each year, yet people still ask if/when she’s hosting it. It’s become a running joke with my family whenever people ask about it.

This 4th was hotter and less cloudy than the last ones, so it was a nice chance to swim for the majority of the day.

But when the sun went down, we pulled up our chairs around the fire pit and celebrated freedom! We lit some sparklers and threw some snaps, then set off some bigger fireworks. My family joked around about who had the best fireworks in the neighborhood.

My cousin even claimed a spaceship sighting:
