That was my 4th of July, how was yours?

 


This is Sergeant Hall and son Mac. Our family spent the day on the Air Force Base while Sergeant Hall worked with the F-16 fighter jets. He snuck away for a bit to come play with the kids and grab a quick kiss from his wife, me, Mrs. Hall. There's photos of that too.

It was a family day on base- there were lots of bouncy houses, bean bag toss and sno cones. All in support of us, the military families. Then we all sat on the hill and watched the jets taking off, making ferocious jet noises. Then the fireworks started. It was a beautiful day. Lots and lots of pictures.

I was so moved by all of it. Got a little weepy being near the other military families. It's hard loving a military man. But it's part of why I love him. He is serving others, serving our country.

This will be the last family day. Sargeant Hall retires this year, his 20th year in the military. I am so proud of him and all that he does. And that photo up there, pretty much says it all.

So, that was my 4th of July, how was yours?
