Very rarely are we all together on the 4th of July to celebrate America's birthday! Here we live in one of the 13 colonies and we need to celebrate it! I gathered up my men folk and we went to the Naval Hospital in Portsmouth to watch the fireworks!
Here we are with our camp chairs on the lawn of the Naval Hospital. A perfect place to go! It isn't too crowded, traffic wasn't bad at all and we didn't have to stake out a place for hours and hours to get a good spot for the show!
Here we are looking over the harbor to Norfolk.
Spring came quickly here in Virginia! In early May, Joe and Rachel Birdwell came to town for Rachel's commencement exercises. She received her Master's Degree! Joe is John's nephew and unfortunately, John was at sea and Ian wasn't home from school yet. Arrick and I enjoyed meeting Joe and Rachel as well as Rachel's Parents. Hope to spend some more time with them soon!

Opsail 2012 is my favorite event!
This event also commemorated the War of 1812. There were many re enactors from that time period around the event. This trio were singing drinking songs! lol
