July Independence Day Celebration

Our compound held a mult-national independence day celebration on July 4 to accommodate all of the different nationalities here.  Canada - July 1st, USA - July 4th, Venezuela - July 5th, and France - July 14th.  They had a bouncy house for the kids, hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill, games for both kids and adults, and a fireworks show.  We had to leave early because Adam was tired and wanted to go home, so we watched the fireworks from our house.  We had a great time, but it would have been nice to have had some sunshine for the event...but at least it wasn't raining!

That looks like a much nicer 4th than I had in Doha. This Summer alone gig gets old in a hurry.

We missed you at Fudds today, Shane.
