Hello all, hope everyone had a fun and safe 4th weekend. The Loya family definitely had a great time but it didn't feel like it was going to be eventful at the beginning. Now if you are like my wife then you like to plan things out weeks or even months ahead of time, but if you're like me then you like to wait until the very last minute the plan anything.
Now its definitely ideal to plan things ahead of time that way everyone is on the same page and you get the maximum amount of fun in the day, but sometimes even the best intentions get put on the back-burner when it comes to dealing with everyday life. Then when you finally find time to figure something out it usually happens days, hours, even minutes before the actual event and thats exactly what happened to us this 4th of July. Now come the morning Independence day eve we were succumb by that scrabbling feeling because we found out that some of our family members were not doing anything either so we invited them to our place which made us the event planners. Not only did we have to worry about that but also had to gather supplies so my wife can continue doing our daughters monthly pictures before she turns one, so we did the easier tasks to do first and did my daughters pictures and they came out Great!
Well after we were finished with that we were still left with our predicament about what were gonna do for the 4th, so naturally what we did was put it off and worry about it later. Later came and now its the morning of the Fourth, so my wife and I really sat down and thought about what we were gonna do. We decided to go to our neighboring park because they always put on a really good firework show and we really wanted to see fireworks since this was our daughters first independence day. Our family showed up at around 3 and since it was still early we went out to eat, and after that got some ice cream (which by the way, it was delicious). At around 6 we started to head down to the park and even though it was packed we were still able to get a good spot to see the fire works. All in all everything worked out, we had a blast, and the firework show was awesome.
We had a great time, not because it was planned or spontaneous but because we had our loved ones to spend the day with and at the end of the day thats all that really matters. Next time when you are planning try not to stress out so much over the details because when you look back on the great times you have had, you're not gonna think about how much planning took place. So just take a breath and everything will work out.
until next time, never stop shooting!
