**Note: Sorry this post is "old news." It was written almost a month ago. Our Internet was acting weird and I couldn't add pictures. Then we didn't have Internet for about a week and I forgot to finish it. I decided I might as well post it anyway. Better late than never. = )
We had a wonderful 4th of July with several of our friends. We had a cook out at a really nice park in Portsmouth. We ate, talked, threw some balls, etc. until just before it got dark. It was really fun getting to know several couples better and meeting some new friends.
Then we all headed to downtown Portsmouth for the fireworks show. We were a little late arriving so it took forever to find a parking spot. When we finally found one, we fast walked to a perfect spot right along the river. Then we waited... ate some licorice... waited... ate some chips...watched some cool lightning shows in the distance...then finally found out the show was canceled due to the weather. We were bummed to say the least!
By the time we got back to the car and began our trek home with the other thousands of people, we were hit with a deluge of rain. There was so much rain our windshield wipers really couldn't keep up and it was hard to see the lines on the road! They rescheduled the show for the next day, but it rained off and on on Saturday as well so we decided not to even try to go see them. At least we got to see some pretty neat fireworks here in Chesapeake on the 3rd!!!
