We had a fabulous 4th of July Holiday! I like this holiday a lot because it signals the half way point of summer. I'm not a huge fan of heat and humidity so I start to look forward to fall just about now. With that said, I do love the beach and the water and summer days to do fun summer things .. .. just not sweating to death trying to clean my house. I think if I had central air and a pool I would enjoy summer a LOT more.
Our local fireworks were on July 3rd this year which was great because that meant Darryl could stay up without worrying about being tired the next day since he gets up at 3:30 am for work. This is also the first year that we let the boys stay up to watch them and to say they were excited is an understatement. All day people were setting off firecrackers and other fireworks and the boys would exclaim, "I hear them, mom, I hear them!" We also planned to catch lightning bugs for the first time too!
