5 events and 4 houseguests later and Hey! I'm back!
AND 20 days after the event, here is how we spent our 4th of July!
We colored on the front porch with our super-cool sidewalk chalk!
Then we ran around in the front yard for awhile. It was a nice change from running around in the back yard.
We watched for Daddy's truck to come around the corner and practiced running to Mom (aka away from the street) if we saw a car coming. It was very cute! I would point at the imaginary car coming down the road and shout, "Look! A car! A car!" and they would all come running to me. Priceless!
That afternoon we were introduced to sparklers. Zachary would have nothing to do with them, but the other three held theirs with various degrees of courage.
And lastly we posed for a great picture in front of the crowning beauty of my very neglected flowerbeds, my beautiful hydrangea bush!
Happy Belated Independence Day!
