A new quasi-tradition is to go to Brooke’s house on July 4th to watch fireworks and have a BBQ. It is also a day to celebrate Brooke (not pictured-why?!) as it is her birthday. To avoid traffic post fireworks Michael and I usually dip out early and watch them from our apartment - which isn’t a bad view. This is the first time in awhile that I have taken out my camera - naturally I photographed some people I love.
