"Pay no attention to The Man with the Giant Flag on His Back"
Early on Friday morning we loaded into the car and headed to Carmel High School for the Carmel Freedom Run. Much like the previous day's picnic, it was pouring down rain. Brent's parents opted to hang out at Einstein Brothers' and around mile 3 I wished I was with them. Despite the pouring rain both Brent and I and the Sinders all felt like we finished with good times and were glad we got a morning workout in. Plus, we got an awesome t-shirt.
On Friday night we went to Carmel again and ate at the Sinders' favorite restaurant, Mudsocks, before heading to Rachel's brother's house to watch fireworks. There were some townhouses in the way so we could really only see the high fireworks, but it was still a great show. I feel pretty lucky to have watched fireworks on two consecutive nights this year!
The 4th of July always reminds me of going to Ma-Ma's house with all the cousins and swimming our little hearts out. We could see Effingham's fireworks from Ma-Ma's front yard so we never had to go anywhere. I have a great 4th of July Ma-Ma pool picture from 17-18 years ago that I will post once I get it scanned.
