4th of July celebration at Heritage Park

This year we decided to go with Chad and Julie Mckinnon to Heritage Park in Simpsonville for a concert performed by the Greenville Symphony Orchestra and fireworks afterwards. We also packed a picnic basket. First, we had French bread sandwiches with jamón serrano, chorizo and manchego cheese. And then for dessert we had a cherry pie. Emma really enjoyed all of the patriotic music! The fireworks on the other hand were a little too scary for her this year. She just laid her head on Chase's shoulder and didn't look up a single time to see the fireworks. =( Oh, well...maybe next year. One thing that we really enjoyed was the 11 canons that the "Sons of the Confederacy" set off while the orchestra played one of their last movements.
