{Personal} 4th of July = Fireworks

This year, the 4th of July fell on a Sunday... and more specifically, the Sunday that we would be travelling towards Texas with the youth group for our annual summer youth camp/conference. We reached our mid-point at about 6:00 pm on Sunday evening.
Ste. Genevieve, Missouri
Home of friends that my family has known longer than I have been alive!! I love these people. :) We seem to have a great system going where someone in our families happen to stay with each other on ministry trips... so we "catch-up" every year or so.

This year, on the 4th of July... so we bonded with fireworks! :)

When dusk began to fall, the whole youth group + 3 adults + family friends + several dogs trekked to a nearby lake for a * bigger* fireworks display.

It looks so peaceful... but looks can be deceiving! LOL

Fireworks started erupting in every direction... In front of us, behind us, to the left, to the right, across the lake. Everywhere!

I think everybody and their brother were setting off fireworks.. What a cool vibe though. Soooo awesome!

And these are some more interesting shots that I took that night.


The Dancing Children (yes, I named it). :) I look at it over and over again. I don't know -- it just speaks to me. :)
It was hands-down the best. 4th of July. ever!
