Project 52 Week 25: An expensive weekend

This weekend we traveled to my in-laws’ to celebrate the 4th of July a little early. Holidays are ranked as follows in this family: #5: Birthdays. #4: Easter. #3: Thanksgiving. #2: Christmas. #1: 4th of July. In fact, we had our very own $600 fireworks display. My father-in-law says, “This is a man’s holiday. We get to drink beer, eat, and blow stuff up.” I hate to burst his bubble, but this female really likes the holiday too.

Since I was in the driver’s seat on the way to my in-laws’ Friday evening, I pulled over to snap a few photos of the sunset.

Another shot of a beautiful sunset in Southeast Kansas. The sun looked bigger than I’d ever seen before!

Nephew Caleb, very serious about shooting his bubble gun.

Niece Beth, acting a bit embarrassed about having her photo taken, but secretly loving it.

Fireworks from our family display Saturday night.
