Just because it is the beginning of August doesn't mean that we can't have a 4th of July recap does it? Because, I never got to share with you all what I did that weekend. A weekend that is one of my most favorites every year. So, here's a flashback to almost a month ago and that wonderfully fun weekend!
One of my good friends from college came down from South Carolina to spend the weekend with me. She hadn't spent any time in Mobile, so we wanted to be sure to do as much as we could. Friday we took advantage of our close proximity to the beach and headed down to soak up some sun before it got too crowded for the weekend. Seafood was eaten, relaxation was enjoyed, and no one got sunburned! That night we headed to another beach for a showing of the movie Jaws. That is the only way to watch that movie! Saturday was the main event and jam-packed, even though we spent the majority of our day at one place. There is nothing more patriotic than spending the day on a United States Battleship, so that is what we did. We spend about three and half hours exploring the USS Alabama Battleship in Mobile Bay. We went up as far as you could go, down to the engine room, bow to stern, and everywhere in between. After a short rest, we visited the USS Drum Submarine, which thankfully, wasn't as intense. Then we headed back the apartment from some movie time, rest time, and the baking of an apple pie. That night we headed back the Battleship for the main event, my favorite part of the weekend, the fireworks show! Sunday we worshiped with our church, took some more time to rest, and then headed out to watch the US Women's Soccer team dominate in the World Cup.
I'm telling you, the fourth of July is probably my favorite holiday.
It perfectly summarizes what summer is.
How did you celebrate the 4th?
