We had a great Fourth of July celebrating our nation's independence despite being in a different country. Camp Zama, the army base my parents live at, had activities for the family throughout the day and the girls enjoyed jumping in inflatable thingies (what are those called?), getting their faces painted, playing in water, eating hamburgers, and going for a canoe ride with Grandma & Grandpa. At the end of our day, the Army band did a concert and ended with the 1812 Overture. At the end of the song when the cannons typically go off -- the fireworks started. It was a great show too! The girls loved the different colors, shapes, and noises.

I took several pictures of the fireworks, but only this one - one of the first - turned out right.

We watched the fireworks while the hill behind created a natural chair to lean on. Here's Esther in my lap. She was mesmerized.
