We all went into town for the big firework show last night.  Of course there were a ton of people there and the lines for food etc. were crazy long.  We were waiting in line to order a funnel cake for about 20 minutes then we had to wait in the pick up line for about another 20 minutes or so.  I order one for the family and my son ordered his own with his own money (he is 14 years old) because he wanted extra.

Well when we were about a minute from picking our order up (there was a couple in line in front of us then it was our turn) he saw an older man who was with his son and DIL (they were talking and we over heard them, this is how I knew their relationship).  He asked the people why there were two lines and they told him one was to order and the other was to pick up and it would be about 30 minutes.  His eyes got big and said no thank you and walked away (and at this time it was about 10 minutes until the fireworks started up so he would have missed them).

So we picked up our order and started walking to our spot.  My son asked me to hold on one minute.  He went over to the old man and handed him his funnel cake.  The man resisted and looked at him weird.  My son insisted that he took it, the old man did.  He handed his son the plate and hugged my son and said thank you.  I just smiled and waved.  When we got back to our spot I asked him why he did that.  He said that he saw the old man's hat and it was something with the WWII on it and his rank (or whatever, I'm not clear on the details).  He said that if it weren't for that man that we wouldn't be here watching the fireworks and he respects his elders, especially those who fought for our country.  

The old man and his family came over to us when the show was over and shook my DH's hand and complimented us on such a great boy. He wished us a happy Independence day and hugged all of the little kids.   I was so proud of him, he is such an amazing kid.  Such a small act of kindness and appreciation made this veteran so happy.  Then we hung around for a half hour or so and he told us some of his stories from when he was in the military.  It was a great night.

Jay-Z and Beyonce are rich, we are very comfortable.

Actually all of the kids clothes in this picture are from Old Navy and the mat is from Target, lol.  But I would have absolutely no problem buying clothes from Walmart though.

I teared up on the way home in the car.

If I would have teared up while talking to my son he would have been all weird about it.  He is at that age where he is too cool for everything and everything he does is "whatever", lol.

Why would her financial status matter when it comes to their wardrobes?  Did it ever occur to you that they are in the financial position of being comofortable because they don't just go and spend their money on crazy purchases???  SMDH.... of course this memeber would hide behind Anonymous....
