We were in Alabama with Alex on the 4th this year. Typically on the 4th, you can find us in Daisy, AR at our family reunion but this year was a little different. Olivia was still not feeling completely well so we stayed in most of the day. That evening we loaded up and went to the USS Alabama site and parked to watch the fireworks. They were beautiful! And having the battleship and airplanes all around caused for a more focused and meaningful memory of what the 4th is all about.
Here is a video, excuse the wobbling around of the camera :). It's also kind of long too.
