4th of July- oops, I forgot


**First off- I need blogger help.  All of a sudden I have a black border around my signature.  I haven't touched my signature or anything in HTML format since forever, so... I'm confused.  I use Internet Explorer all the time, so I double checked it in Firefox and the box isn't there.  What's going on?!  Can anyone help me?

Anyway... onto the topic...
I can't believe I forgot to post about our 4th of July!  We didn't do anything out of this world, but we did enjoy our 4th of July beach tradition.
In the past, (2008, 2009, and 2010) our tradition has always been to get Subway and have a picnic on the beach.  Then, we'd hang out (usually take pictures or make videos) until the madness started at sunset.  This year we decided to skip the Subway and do something different.  We started at Hardee's and had dinner.  Then we picked up some Doritos (one of my favorites) and some Wonka chocolate.  We indulged in our snacks as we watched the craziness on the beach.



I wish I could describe to everyone the scene on the beach as it got darker.  Before the professionals started, people were setting fireworks everywhere... from a few miles north in Cherry Grove to  20+ miles south in Myrtle Beach, and we could see them all!  The videos don't do it justice at all either.  It seems like every year it gets bigger and crazier too!

Love fireworks on the beach! I know that here they don't allow people to fire there own on the beach, because it is a fire hazard, but what is there to catch fire on the beach?! People do it anyways though...

Oh I wish we lived by the beach. It would be so neat to watch fireworks and just listen to the ocean waves.

Stopping by from Jenna's.

How awesome you are from MB. We were just there in the end of June and first of July. Were going back to Ocean Lakes at the end of August for another week.

It would have been great to see fireworks at the beach, but we always leave right before the 4th because prices are higher and its much more crowded.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Aren't fireworks at the beach the best, especially when you can see them in all directions. :)Looks like you guys had a great fourth.
