The 4th of July on the 7th of July

Since the 4th fell on a Wednesday and South Korea decided not to observe the holiday (weird, right?), my friends and I planned a little celebration for the 7th. We decided to spend the evening at a lake that's about a short walk from our apartment complex. We each packed a picnic lunch and headed off for the lake to soak up some sun (it'd been POURING for most of the week) and enjoy one another's company.

The York's brought a volleyball and we ended up creating this really fun game called "Hot Ball" that is a mix between four square, horse, and volleyball. I won one of the rounds we played but lost in the championship game to Lisa. 
After playing quite a bit of Hot Ball, we lit some sparklers, roman candles, and fountain fireworks. It was a lot of fun. Fireworks are one of my favorite things about the 4th of July. I think they are magical anytime I see them, but there's something so nostalgic about seeing them on the 4th (or in my case, the 7th) of July. 

Can you see Thomas lighting his hair on fire in our Tebow picture? Thank goodness Cameron had such a quick reaction and ran over to put it out! It did give us all a pretty good laugh and luckily there was no visible damage done to Thomas' hair. I'd say it was a pretty perfect end to our 8th of July in Korea celebration! 



  1. I love the picture of you and Junie!

    1. It cracks me up! She's such a weirdo.

  2. Haha, what do you mean they don't celebrate American Independence day? So weird.

    "Hot Ball" sounds like a pretty rad game. Cute photos :)

  3. Shame on them for not celebrating!!!! rude.

    Hahahah that's so hilarious that your friend lit his hair on fire! That's so funny (yet scary).
