Independence Day

We celebrated this year with a slab of ribs on the grill, a Corona Light with a lime, two sweaty kids and enough sparklers to serve all of Horry County.

We threw around the idea of fighting the traffic to watch the fireworks over the Marsh Walk in Murrells Inlet, but our back porch won out - again.  In past years, we were actually able to see various firework shows going on around us, but this year we were only able to hear them.  We weren't overly disappointed.  The bottle rockets and sparklers thoroughly entertained the kids and that's all that really mattered.

Evan, for whatever reason, was terrified to hold a sparkler this year - even though he's held one every year since about the age of two.  Mattie, on the other hand, was thrilled as she could be.  We lit up almost an entire box just for her.

It was a simple celebration - always the best kind in our book.

Happy 4th of July, friends!
