We have three main firework shows between the 3rd and 4th of July. I took this selfie on the 3rd of July. In my hometown the 3rd of July is kind of a big deal. The city puts on a pops concert. The symphony plays patriotic music and film scores (which, lets be honest I love).
In the past my family and I would watch the fireworks from the rooftop of the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts. This year we had the Watt reunion! We were able to see the fireworks from the hotel (right up the river from the show).
In this picture I'm surrounded by my family (even though they aren't in the picture with me).
The 3rd of July always makes me think of my grandmother, who loved having us all together to watch the fireworks. What I loved about this 3rd of July is that even though my grandmother is not physically with us, more of our family gathered for the 3rd of July in San Angelo, Texas than ever before.
