How was everyone’s long holiday weekend? It was a pretty good one here. I loved having the hubby home for 4 days straight but Allison is pretty upset her daddy had to go back to work today.
I woke up on the 4th and did my usual thing, made my coffee and sat out on the porch catching up on Facebook. When I read that a prisoner escaped the prison the night before and there was a massive search for him. I live right next to some woods so I freaked out a little bit and got back inside. Called my mom who lives 5 roads up and told her about it and told her not to sit outside by herself. There is a convicted rapist out on the loose and I don’t know if he is still in town. Luckily he was captured that evening. He was a little country market when he was tackled by another customer and held down until the police arrived. The man who tackled him works at the same shop as my hubby!
It was a rainy 4th this year. Which meant no swimming and wondering if there would even be fireworks. I was getting the food ready for the grill when Allison informed me I can’t cook out cause it’s raining. Oh honey the grill is on the porch, it will be fine.
I was going for well done burgers!
The rain finally stopped before it was time to head out to the fireworks. But before we left the fire flies was out like crazy so the kids and I decided to go catch a few. This is one of the kids favorite summer time activities.
Allison likes to pretend to catch them, she really doesn’t want to catch one. I have assured her they don’t bite.
We met up with my sister-in-law and her crew to head out to the park to watch the fireworks. There was a storm coming and we were keeping our fingers crossed it wouldn’t hit until the show was over.
We arrived about 20 minutes before the fireworks started so there was a lot of picture-taking going on.
I tried to get some good pictures of the show on my iPhone but that didn’t happen.
The rest of the weekend was going out-of-town for pizza, shopping, and Chuck E. Cheese. Now I want to be extremely lazy for a few days to rest up from all the running around!
What is your 4th of July activity?
