This year the Fourth of July seemed a little different than usual. Brandon was in Norman all weekend, the big kids were in Bartlesville, and the younger kids and I drove to Norman to be with Brandon and then to Bartlesville to see family. Add in the pouring rain, and it just didn't feel like our typical Fourth. But I think everyone had fun. Even with the rain we still swam and grilled out, the kids still went tubing on the lake, and the rain stopped just in time for the fireworks.
