We had a good fourth of July. We went to Fort Bragg's thing to watch the para-jumpers do their show. It was hot, crowded, and expensive. We went back home to have our corned beef and cabbage dinner (so American of us). We did a little bit of fireworks in the backyard because we aren't aloud to do them on base. Julie burned herself while using two sparklers at once. She's fine, nothing big. Once it got late enough we went to the soccer fields to watch Fort Bragg's fireworks. I think this is the first time the kids have both been up to watch them on the fourth. Oh yeah, the dress I'm wearing is one that I make earlier that morning. It's made out of old fourth of July T-shirts.
