I am a little behind in my posting again...
The 4th of July is American Independence Day. I spent the holiday at my uncle's house. We ate a lot of BBQ and shot off some really awsome fireworks. I liked the ones I picked out best, they shot up really high and had several different blasts, each with different colors and effects. We almost didn't get to have fireworks at all because it would have been too dry, but it rained really good on the weekend.
We had already had a get-together on Saturady at one of my dad's uncle's. There were quite a few more people there, all more extended family, most of which I didn't know. We swam in the pool for a while then my cousins and I played Blackjack and poker. It is a good thing we didn't bet money because I didn't do very well. Had a great time overall though.
