4th of July - 2007

For the 2nd year, we spent the 4th of July in Canadian/Shamrock with my Sister and her family. This year, we actually stayed and watched the Fireworks in Shamrock. Although we thoroughly missed the Santos family, with whom we've spent the last 5 or 6 fireworks evenings with, nothing can compare to family. Hopefully, one of these days we can talk to the Santos family into joining us for some small town fun!

The kids entered turtles in the turtle race and Clarissa's turtle, Sally, won two heats! The competition was fierce and the excitment was unimaginable! We even witnessed two firsts: a turtle false start and a run-off in the finals! You haven't lived until you experience a tutle race!

Well, I must say that our "spot" at the fireworks show here seemed awfully quiet this year, if any spot can seem quiet in the midst of a fireworks show. But you were missed here as well. We certainly thought of you as we watched our show and wondered if you were enjoying yours. Looks as though you did. And maybe by next year we can find our own hermit turtle in the back yard and get his training started!
