I didn't take many pics b/c we were busy having a good time, but I did take a couple slow motion videos of the fireworks - this doesn't do them justice by any means, but I thought it was neat!
One of the new friends Emma made taught her how to ride a skateboard, too - now she wants one! Ha ha!!! We'll see!
Today has been a productive and easy going day! I had to make a run to Sam's and made it home with loot to get separated and put up. I made some homemade salsa with some more tomatoes I had, shelled peas that Michael brought in from the garden. I didn't have quite enough for everyone for dinner so I am putting those up to add to more he picks later. Got lunch snacks pre-bagged for the kids' lunches, cleaned out the fridge, gave Soldier and shower (yes, he takes showers) and took him for a walk for a speedy air dry, picked up in the back yard, did the dishes. The only thing I wanted to get done today that I haven't done was make french bread to put in the freezer for quick breakfasts for the kids next week - I am out of eggs, though and don't know if I feel like making another store run so that may not get done. Won't feel guilty about that, though!!
It's been a wonderful week off - I've thoroughly enjoyed our staycation and wouldn't mind continuing it, but tomorrow it's back to work! We've had a lot of changes at work recently, though so Monday is going to be very..."new"! I'm anxious to see how things change.
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday with your family and friends!
