I had planned to get a pic of the kids and I in our patiotic garb, but it just didn't happen. Go figure - lol! I hope that you all had a wonderful 4th of July and took a few moments to think about what it means to live in a country where we are so privileged and often take for granted the freedom that others may never know.
Our day was really pretty uneventful, but somehow I am still exhausted. We were lazy getting moving this morning but did manage to get out for a little exercise this morning before it became unbearably hot. Mark pushed Maia on her trike while I rode my bike and Matthew drove his tractor. My friend Del came over for a visit and blessed us with a wonderful meal. After she left, we took a very short nap before Matthew and Mark went outside to play water games. My parents visited and we had an awesome July 4th meal of brats, spinach salad, fresh fruit, and baked beans with red, white, and blue cupcakes for dessert (Matthew LOVED them - thanks Keith and Linda!). So yummy and I didn't have to do anything other than heat up the food and put it on the table.
Matthew and I spent a little time outside playing after dinner before we got the kids ready for bed. And I'm ready to follow them. Boring post, I know...I'm just pooped. Would have loved to see the fireworks tonight, but since it's back to work in the morning - not going to happen.
Anyway... more soon, happy 4th!!
