Happy 4th!

Our 4th of July was rather low key.  Veronica spent the week at 4-H camp in Pollock, LA, so it was just three of us instead of four.  Clint grilled lunch for us and I made my mom's bread pudding for an easy dessert.  We sat around most of the afternoon being very lazy!  Clint and Val went firework shopping and made it back just in time for the 4th of July parade:




Basically some of the fun people in the back decorate golf carts and trailers then ride around the block throwing candy!

Then we all went for round 2 of firework shopping and got snowballs on the way home.




Val and I sat outside on the porch a while and then drew with chalk in the driveway while waiting for nightfall.




Then we spent a couple of hours popping fireworks!  Fun, fun....




Today:
I'm catching up on a little housework and I may take Valerie to the mall for some "BACK TO SCHOOL" shopping (yes already.)

Baby girl is coming home today, also!!!  Oh, how I have missed her all week.  Camp does not allow phones or electronics so we have had no communication AT ALL.  I have just seen a few pictures of her on our 4-H Facebook page....  I hope she had a great time.  I can't wait to hear all about her camp  adventures!!

It looks like you had a fun and relaxing 4th of July!

Kamree is going to overnight camp in August and she can't take electronics either! Therefore, it will be a long week for us too!
