For the past few years we have hosted 4th of July. It's the one holiday that I feel like our house is at it's best. We have a wonderful view of the fireworks from the porch and people can hang out in the house, back yard or front yard. There is plenty of room. Well, this year was also filled with excitement: a neighborhood office chair race, a neighbor's near arrest, blood, tears and (the grand finale) fireworks. All this excitement left little time for photos. Here's what I did capture.
