cuz baby you're a fiiiirework.

camp is amazing.

4th of july means carnival means funnel cakes, cotton candy, snow cones, face painting, inflatable rides, a huge dance-off (i was working at the snow cone booth, otherwise, you know i would have been a part of that), and -seriously- the most amazing fireworks show i have ever seen.

i sat there with my mouth open the entire time and felt
4 years old; nothing could quell my wonder.
when my grandpa (we called him Grandad) used to pray, he always ended by saying,
"...and thank You for this great land of freedom in which we live."
grandad, I echo you so strongly tonight!
what a gift it is to have the freedoms that we do.
thank you to all who protect them.

happy summer. :)
