Happy 4th of July!

I hope everyone enjoyed celebrating Independence Day today. We sure did! Earlier in the day we took a trip to our local factory outlet stores and won some great bargains. And while we were there Bilal had a chance to watch some balloon twisting in action. He chose a sword and hat (of course!)

Later in the day the cousins came over to play for a while.

Then after dinner we all headed down to the Mall to enjoy the Trussville Freedom Celebration, complete with games for the kids, a mini concert by the local band Act of Congress, and of course, fireworks.

It was actually cooler on the Mall than it has felt in several days.

Safa brought her friend and fellow Act of Congress fan with her.

And the fireworks were great!

(A lot better then my lame photo represents, I promise!)
