This year the fourth of July was busy for us. Aunt Toni and Uncle Ben hosted a bbq up in Emerson, NJ and then later on that evening we attended a party at the Pooley's house! The best part of my fourth of July was the fact that my neice/Goddaughter Alyssa (14 yrs.) came down to stay with us for a few days today! She hasn't been down in a couple of years--so it was nice to have her here. 9:30pm we headed down to the waterfront and watched the Macy's fireworks live across the river. It was a bit rainy-two years in a row that it rained some. All in all a good day. Happy Birthday America!
