Another Fourth Has Come And Gone

One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Another Fourth Has Come And Gone

As the Fourth of July passed, it means my summer is officially half over. Which has its upsides and downsides. Unfortunately, it means I will be back to a full class load in about six weeks. But the last half of my summer is always the most fun. For the holiday, I joined my friend in Okoboji, Iowa and spent time out on the lake. I got a lot of sun and de-stressed. Being the midpoint of the summer, I think that is a great reason to take a little break from real life. Here are five pictures that likely sum up your Fourth of July Weekend.

1. Fireworks

I don't care if you're 5 or 50, fireworks will always be an enjoyable event during your holiday.

2. Sunning Yourself

With heavy drinking, you may have forgotten your sunscreen last weekend. I hope you didn't end up like Will.

3. Drinking

We won't judge you, and we don't discriminate between alcohol types.

4. Food, Food and More Food

Diets don't count during the weekend or holidays, but you may feel a bit full after your long weekend.

5. Friends and Family

A party wouldn't be a party without your right hand (wo)man by your side.

Let us not forget the real meaning of this holiday, to celebrate our independence and what this great country has given us. We wouldn't be able to get drinks, go out boating or spend our leisure time how we want if our founders didn't stick up for our rights to liberty and freedom. It's only fair we have a day to celebrate them, us and our future generations. Until next year, Fourth.
