The Fourth!

Happy Birthday America!!  What a great, fun- filled weekend it was!  I love that patriotism in America seems so high right now with the World Cup, Fourth, and support for our troop in Afghanistan and Iraq.

I got to spend the holiday weekend with those dearest to me- my family, boyfriend, boyfriend's family, and best friends.

On Saturday, we headed out in the boat for a day on the water and sandbar.

After a great day on the water, we refreshed up and had a delicious supper of Frogmore Stew before heading out to Wahoo's to listen to a fun band and walk along the board walk.

Sunday, we headed out in front of Lash's family's beach house to celebrate the fourth.  Check out all of our loot!  haha.  Complete with a KFC bucket, Bud Light, and a watermelon. . . pretty American, huh?

At 2:00 pm, a C-17 military jet began their fly-over from Myrtle Beach to Hilton Head filming footage to send to the troops over at war.  The beaches were PACKED with literally swarms of people waving American flags.  It was beautiful seeing the love and support of fellow Americans.  What a neat tribute to send to our heros!  I hope the video warms their hearts.

After all day Saturday and Sunday in the sun, we were pretty beat.  We did manage to go watch the fireworks, but after that called it a night pretty early.  Here's the last shot of my handsome man :)

Hope everyone had a great, great fourth!
