As is our tradition, we spent Independence Day with local family. Not ALL local family, because my Mom was in the Bay area, waiting for my little sister to deliver baby girl #2 (that puts me at 7 nieces and 6 nephews), who made her appearance at 2:22pm. So none from my side of the family were here, but the Twist family was well-represented.
There was shooting of soda cans and clay pigeons.
It was pretty great, indeed.
