Great Day

Today turned out to be a very nice day.  We actually go the pool set up but by the time the water was warm enough and the chemicals had did their job it got stormy looking and cooled way down outside. So the poor kids still haven't got in the pool yet.

But we did get our cookout finished and it didn't rain on us. We sat out under the tree and ate and talked and played with the grandkids. So funny watching them eating those great big marshmallows after toasting them and they were all gooey.  I think more got on them then in them .lol

Then the neighbors were all putting off fireworks and the kids had their sparkler so they were having a blast.

After we ran Kecia home I took the grankids and went by Dairy Queen and we all got ice cream cones and sat out on the tailgate of my truck listening to music and watching more fireworks.  Just put them to bed and now taking some me time.

So how was your Independence Day?

Sounds like a lot of fun!   It was a great day for me too.  It poured rain all day and I grilled out with an umbrella.  Everyone had to pitch in.  Good family fun.  We saw some fireworks through windshield wipers and it will be a day we will remember!  Happy fourth!

It was a quiet day for me.  Fireworks are banned nearly city-wide here in the Kansas City area and although I heard a few rogue firecrackers, I realized hearing firecrackers all day would have made the day feel more like a celebration.  Anyway, I bugged out of work an hour early although my pace was very leisurely - felt like a weekend day all day.  I mostly read the rest of the afternoon and for supper I ordered a pizza from Pizza Hut.  ugh.  lol.  carb city.  finished the book and went to bed.  the end.

I had a pretty good day. I had to work, had planned a camp fire with my residents. It was so hot, but we did the fire and roasted hot dogs. We also celebrated one of their birthdays with a jello cake decorated like a flag. It was a good day. Fire works are on Saturday for my community, but neighbors were setting some off all evening. My dog was not happy! I'm not sure what we will do on Saturday, she  hyper-ventilates when she hears loud noises and we live really close to the place where they set off the community display!

It was a quiet day for me and dh since dd and her family were mini vacationing in Seattle.  So it was quiet but nice and also hot, so we dined in our dining room, played some card and board games and  then went out on our front deck and watched the city;s fireworks display.

I'm glad you had a good time.  Sounds like fun!  I went to a cookout and then came back here with the pups and watched the fireworks on the back deck.
