Independence Weekend

It was here and now it's gone! Happens so fast...every year at the 4th Matt sits there and says how Christmas will be here in no time and sure enough it is, and at Christmas he tells us how the 4th will be here in no time and it is! Time sure does fly!
So this year on Saturday I did the Carissa's Run at 530 am with my girlfriend Mechel.  I got home about 7 and got evrything ready for the parade.  Matt had to work Friday night so he was going to sleep while I took the kids.  The parade was pretty lame! Someone whined somewhere and so the parade had to be totally dry, no water balloons, squirt guns, hoses, nothing! It's such a fun tradition to attend the parade, but I honestly don't know that we will continue to do so.  After the parade I made a quick stop in at a baby shower and then home to get dinner all ready.  We had our friend Garth and his girlfriend over for dinner which was fried chicken, potatoe salad, buttered bread and a dinner salad.  I finally made the flag cake I've been wanting to do for the past few years.  We stayed home and watched the fireworks from the comfort of our front yard!  We got to visit with friends and family which is always important, but Matt missed seeing his brother Jared!  We know it will be here again in no time and look forward to fun traditions and celebrating our country's freedom! So grateful for all the service men and women that have made that possible and continue to do so!

I agree about the parade...I don't think we will go again either.
