Fourth of July Fun!

My family was able to come down for a couple days and celebrate 4th of July! Since they have to leave on the actual fourth, I tried to find stuff to do for Sunday night.
We drove out to Lake Pleasant, about a45 minute drive, to watch the fireworks there! This was Colby & I's first time out there but I know we will definitely be back! It was gorgeous! They had some beaches, nice grass, and lots of boats and people to watch!
When we got there it was really windy and looked like a storm was coming. We were worried they were going to cancel the fireworks but around 730 the winds calmed down and the temperature dropped to the low 90s! It was so nice out! Around 8 we noticed storm clouds surrounding us and lighting in the distance! The lightning show was just as cool as the fireworks! Anyways, it started to sprinkle, then it would stop. So they started the fireworks about 30 minutes early! It was so cool to see the fireworks with the lightning behind it! At the very end of the fireworks show it started pouring down rain! We attempted to run back to the truck like everyone else, but were drenched by the time we got there!
Never thought I would have to worry about rain on the fourth of july here!!
Back in Las Vegas they had flash flooding, high winds and power outages so I guess we lucked out here!

Here are a couple pictures from our adventure!!
