I hope everybody had a fun and safe 4th of July weekend. We had two celebrations - kinda. The hubs' office usually throws a 4th of July BBQ. This year it was on the 3rd because they all had to get back to work today (the 5th). The kids all had fun and we all sat around with friends, talked and had a nice relaxing time - til the county Fire Department showed up (a special thanks to whoever it was who brought the illegal 'works). I got out of there just in time! *sigh* Anyway, then last night we had our own little celebration in the backyard. The boys got to play in the little pool and we grilled steak and corn and had baked potatoes. After dinner we waited around for it to get dark and then we lit a few little fireworks. Nothing big, but Nate really enjoyed playing with the sprinklers (read: sparklers). All in all, a good 4th of July weekend.

Nate likes his grilled corn!
HA! A big bang happened exactly at the same time as I snapped this picture.
It's that magic time of day where both boys are safe and secure in their rooms. They're supposed to be sleeping, but Nate has been in his room for almost 2 hours and I think he's slept *maybe* 20 minutes. Either way, he's out of my hair and it gave me just a few minutes to get a post done. Now, maybe, if I'm lucky, I'll have a little bit of time to get some stuff done around the house because it's back to the regular routine tomorrow.
As always, thanks for stopping by! Please remember to tip your waitress. I'm here all week. :)
