Good morning everyone (nearly afternoon already!). Finally the weather cooperated for us and the sun was shining all day long and there is no rain in the forecast for a whole week! Practically unheard of in this neck of the woods!
Tuesday evening we left the kids with my parent's and headed to a nearby lake where they put on a fireworks show. We got together with some friends and just relaxed by a bonfire. Before we knew it, it was 1:00 am!
Needless, to say we were each dragging a bit the next morning but at least we had a chance to sleep in a bit since the kids were at my parent's.
We picked up the kids and headed out to a local island where Brandon's entire extended family get together every year on the 4th for a parade and bbq.
The plan was for the four of us to ride, but Jax didn't want to. What a surprise! So, Kendra and I did. I was surprised with how great she did. She tried so hard to throw the candy far enough to reach the kids but she couldn't quite make it. :)
However, as soon as the bigger, louder things started going off I got an inkling of Jaxson's unease.
Fireworks are legal in our city limits so people go a little crazy. It was about one when I finally nodded off and didn't get woken up again.
All in all, it was a fantastic day! What did you go?
