Fourth of July

I spent it at Lake Joy where Brandon hosted a day full of activities. I played volleyball, dodgeball (for the first time), swam in the lake. Putted around with a croquet stick and decided it was too hard to get the ball past the narrow opening.

When dusk came, I dragged Max, Brandon's second cousin, out to the middle of Lake Joy. It was awesome. I saw fireworks going out all around the lake, the first time I've had a 360 view of fireworks. Max and I had a long conversation. Brandon's fireworks eventually went off... and we saw this red flare heading right at our rowboat. I freaked out. It landed about 15 feet from where we were, and still burned as it was underwater. Max was laughing like a kid in the candy store. I was freaking out.. 2 more fireworks fell close to us.

Aside from that, it was all very serene and beautiful.
