Happy 4th!

Well, another 4th of July has come (and almost gone). I can't believe it! It was 232 years ago that we claimed our independence and became our own country. That's crazy for me to think about.
Every year, we as americans, celebrate the day with cookouts, fireworks, and get togethers with family and friends.
This year our celebration was quite a bit smaller than years past. It was just the 5 of us and my great aunt. My dad made hamburgers on the grill, and we dined on potato salad, chips, fruit, etc. It was all pretty tasty!
Afterwards my great aunt showed us a new card game while my dad caught a nap. He'd been out late and up early, so he needed to catch a few more minutes of zzzz's. Then we headed out to play some ladder golf. Not my idea of a fun time (maybe it's because I wasn't very good at it), but still we shared some laughs.

Now my dad and sisters went to Menards to get some home improvement items for Hol and I need to start getting ready for work soon. The floor is jam-packed full, and hopefully we don't get anymore tonight.
Take care of your kids very cautious if you will be setting off your own fireworks tonight.... and BE SAFE!!!!
