A few notes: 

- We enjoyed corn, new potatoes, and beets from my grandpa's garden.  My grandma is still in the hospital, so I felt like an impostor following her instructions on how she prepares the new potatoes.  It was really weird and sad to celebrate a holiday without her, but as soon as the ice cream was finished, my dad rushed a bowl up to her.  I will gladly hand the reigns back over next year.  

- I never get pictures of everyone, so I am going to start making that a requirement before they leave my house.  We had lots of people from both my and Dan's family.  

- You will notice there aren't any pictures of fireworks.  That is because we didn't have any.  Not on purpose, we just didn't.  And I will be honest and say I was a little relieved.  Fireworks scare me.  Instead we played whiffle ball, in the kiddie pool, on the slip n' slide, and talked politics. 

- I was in bed by 9.  So was Ina.  We slept through all the M-80 explosions going off next door.  

I hope you have a wonderfully blessed weekend!

  1. Looks like you had a perfect day. Nothing better than relaxing with the family. We live in an area where there are a least 3 different fireworks going off not to mention the neighbors that have them too. My chihuahua hates it so we try to make him as comfortable as possible
