David and I were fortunate to both be off on the 4th of july. Due to the beautiful weather we decided to take a drive out Diamond Lake Blvd. We drove out to Millpond Park. It was where we originally wanted to have our wedding, but they were rebuilding the pavillion when we were supposed to get married. The new one looks great. We are thinking we'll probably have a big family get-together there sometime. It is a really pretty spot. There is a group camping ground across the street that we were considering too.
After walking around there for a bit we drove down to the fish hatchery. The little kid in me likes to stop there and feed the fish. It's fun to see them flip almost out of the water trying to get to the food pellets first. We met my mom for lunch and took it easy for the rest of the day.
Nathan and Kayla had some fireworks so we picked some up too and headed over to an empty parking lot. Other people had the same idea. It's not the 4th of July if you don't get to set something on fire. Next year we might get together with more people. Nobody had any real plans this year, but that's ok. It all worked out.
