Happy July 4th!
Sounds like for the most part you survived the 4th, and I might go so far as to say you even had fun :)
Quick warning, it's been a pretty uneventful week. Down here, it is getting so hot like 109, but luckily on Thursday, there was this gigantic dust storm so it was a bit cooler than usual.
The 4th was interesting for us, we had to be in our apartment by 5 which was pretty lame but at the same time we did get to just relax for a bit which was actually quite nice.
On Wednesday, the entire mission (except Yuma) got to go to transfer meeting (Yuma skyped in)!! It was so fun to be able to see everyone, I loved it.
We also got to go to the Visitor's Center last night and that was really fun. The spirit you feel there is just so strong. It was a cool experience.
