I love the 4th of July, it always makes me think of cookouts, family time, going to the pool and of course fireworks! Growing up I would usually spend the 4th at my Grandma Joy's (cute huh?) in the country. So, last Saturday I was explaining to Jeff how much fun we would have and how everyone would get together when we came up. I decided that I would go, and by myself since Jeff didn't have the vacation time from work to go. It's about a nine hour drive but the best part is I could take my time and stop when and where and how often I wanted too!
It has been a few years since I was last out that way and I forgot how pretty it really is out there. They live outside a small town that a has a river that runs alongside the town. It is the typical small town America type place. Definitely a change of pace from Dallas where everyone is constantly in a hurry and you don't take the time to appreciate the small things.
Such a great way to spend the holiday and my vacation! I was even home in time to watch the fireworks with the hubster.
