Do you have fun family traditions for the 4th of July? We have one that we started last year - and the girls love it! Owen was a mere 2 weeks old last summer and I was in no condition to traipse about for hours, so Joe took the girls to the hot air balloon festival. It gets pretty cool (55) over night even though it has been in the 90's all week, and that allows the balloons to have a good flight before it gets too hot. Here's the girls last year :) There's more pictures here.
We got down there this morning with the masses - it didn't quite work out as planned but we still had a great IHOP breakfast (a real treat) and good family time. Later, we have a bbq planned, and fireworks in the evening in town. We have gone to a golf course driving range ever since we moved here. The kids are able to run around until it gets dark and then we wait for the show! That reminds me - we need glow sticks for tonight - identifiers for the kids. . .
Enjoy your day - Amy
Edited to add: I almost forgot! My quilt top, as far as I got yesterday. . . I need to sew it together I just laid it out to see where I was at. My goal was to use as much of the fabric as possible, and I only have 4 little squares left! I will get a better picture when it is together.
