Our city’s fireworks shows were cancelled this Fourth of July because of rain — but our spirits weren’t dampened. My husband was underway on a carrier participating in exercises, but surprised us with an early return. He arrived just in time for a neighborhood bike parade led by a firetruck (of course I forgot my camera!). We were grateful to spend the holiday with this mama and her kiddos…nothing like a backyard barbeque when it’s scorching outside! Thank you for your opening your home and your heart to my family sweet friend.
