The Fourth

Our 4th of July was a little more mellow than in years past. Dr. H. stayed home with a stomach bug, and half the cousins weren't there. Still, we had good fireworks and good food. My second and third brothers are the kings of explosives.

And most importantly, we had lots of good family there, even if several were missing.

These are the days I cherish, with my children in red, white and blue and my parents in lawn chairs, soaking in family.

  1. Soaking in family is so much better than soaking in all the sun we've had lately...

    Glad you had a beautiful 4th!

  2. Yes, time spent with family. Nothing better.

  3. We had a super mellow fourth as well, but we were with family. Nothing to take for granted, huh?
