All of that being said, I was pretty bummed this morning, thinking about how I wasn't really going to be doing anything to celebrate. But, one thing led to another, and, in an uncharacteristically split second decision, I ended up making last minute plans. The thought of that is still making me uncomfortable, but I had a great time. I'm tired, and I will definitely be tomorrow, but, luckily, the kids are testing, so I'm not teaching classes tomorrow. Yay! (More time to plan a killer English Camp!)
I ended up going with a group of friends to a nearby American military base. We ate Mexican food (not patriotic, but DELICIOUS!), did some shopping, and watched some fireworks (we didn't have a clear view, but I can't really remember the last time I did, so that was still great for me!). It was definitely a good celebration.
Here are some photos for you viewing pleasure.

|These girls were incredibly excited by the show and getting better pictures on their phones than the rest of us were with our nice cameras.|
|I did manage to get one or two decent shots, though!|
:) Happy 4th of July!!!
