The 4th...a Little Late

Although it’s been a few days, I want to share a little about our 4th!

We joined with a few other senior missionary couples, along with our mission president and his wife (and a visiting daughter and her family), for a barbeque and to watch fireworks on the deck of the USS Missouri.

We missed our usual traditions with family, but we enjoyed listening to the children around us gasp as the fireworks lit up the sky, especially the star-shaped and smiley face ones. It was a beautiful evening and a once-in-a-lifetime experience with missionary friends and family.
