You've just experienced the photo journal of my Independence Day celebration. If you couldn't tell it started out with a weekend beach trip to my home in Ventura, CA, then concluded with an evening at a local carnival. The people photographed are my two foreign exchange students, Michaela (Sweden) and Paula (Spain), Rachel (sister/photog), the lovely Monica, miss Laura and her Spanish student, Sofia. Basically, I couldn't have asked for a better 4th of July... My favorite holiday by far. I love America.
