It must have been the 4th of July.
Except we didn't venture out for our local parade. We should have so that Annelise would have a better understanding of the meaning of the holiday. Note to self: next year go to the parade.
In the early afternoon the skies opened up.
Ixnay on the immingsway.
So we made do hanging around Pappo's house for the afternoon.
We tried to be 4thly festive in our attire at least. The beach ball did too.
Yummy burgers and sausage were grilled and consumed, before I had the presence of mind to snap a photo. Hunger plays with your mind, you know.
Five hours later, it was just about time for the fireworks to pop. We are usually able to see two or three different firework shows from in front of our house, so we don't delve into the crowds. Those pesky skeeters started in on us though, and Annelise was close to spontaneous combustion, so we called it a night.
This morning, when my alarm beeped at 5:00 to rouse me from my slumber, I almost talked myself out of going for my run. After a later night, the urge to snooze is terribly strong. Now that I'm done pounding out 8 miles, I'm rather glad I didn't listen to myself. Since it was overcast the heat was a little more forgiving today, thank goodness. Now I have an appointment with my foam roller, my pesky ITBs are talking to me.
We are having a lazy daisy Saturday so far, which is wonderful. A. is playing with Play-Doh on the floor while we watch Anne of Green Gables. How much am I loving Ann with an e? Lots! I must admit I have never read the books, but I am planning to do so soon. I am also adding Prince Edward Island to my ever growing list of Someday Sights to See.
How did you celebrate the 4th? Have you played Mexican Train? How do you spend lazy Saturdays? What do you think of Anne of Green Gables?
