I have always loved the 4th of July for many reasons! The great food, warm weather, getting to blow stuff up and just generally celebrating 'Merica and all that stands for are just a few reasons why this holiday holds a special place in my heart. I shouldn't lie... I love all holidays- but for different reasons! What can I say, I'm an equal opportunity holiday lover!
In the sleepy little town where I currently reside you may think it's just another day- but you would be wrong! This little town loves any excuse to celebrate! Look at this!
As luck would have it, it was raining!
SHOCKER Do you think that stops these folks- big.fat.no. Watch out for my next installment of Cordovaisms Vol. 2 to talk about the rain. Needless to say- the show went on!

|Ok, so this is how we really felt about the rain... but we made do!|
When was the last time you saw street games, a dunk tank and a community picnic put on by a City?! Yeah, never- that's when. They say it's not Mayberry but it might as well be with awesome community activities like this!
All I can say about the egg toss D and I were roped into
thanks Kels is that we weren't the first ones out!! Overall it was a pretty fun hour until we decided to throw in the towel and go snuggle up with pizza and movies!
It was a little to wet for my little Florida ladies to light off fireworks but don't worry! We've still got of time & roman candles- if this rain ever goes away!
How was your 4th? Did you community do something fun? Burn anything?
Until next time...
