Archive for July, 2009

I know its no longer the Fourth of July. However, several days ago I thought back to memory I wanted to share.

Many years ago, when I was probably about 10 or 11, I remember watching fireworks from on top of a car. I don’t think it actually happened on the Fourth of July and I don’t know when it happened, but I guess the fireworks made me equate it with the Fourth. However, I think what made the event special was not the fireworks (though watching them from on top of a car was pretty cool!), but the fact that I was enjoying them with my cousins Rachel and Becky. I don’t remember the circumstances behind why we were together, but I do remember that we were all at a hotel together from some reason and watched the fireworks from the parking lot. It was a great view and all three of us really enjoyed them.

I don’t know why this particular memory has stuck with me, but it has. Now more than 10 years later, Rachel is married with two children and Becky is recently married and expecting her first child. At a time when we’re all growing up and starting our own lives, I guess its fun to remember back to simpler times.
