4th of July weekend
Well the 3 day weekend is about over. Daddy has been home since Friday. He has not been feeling his best. He gets run down from time to time from partying all the time. Just kidding. He works hard and likes his free time which is usually is from about 10 to 1 or 3 in the morning! I understand wanting to have downtime, I myself stay up till about midnight almost every night. We both tell each other that we are turning in early only to find that it's midnight already! He seems to be on the up swing of feeling better today. I hope.
Anyway, we still had a nice weekend. We went to see a fireworks show that was in Sachse on the 3rd. We figured that the crowd wouldn't be as bad as it would be on Friday the 4th. We figured right. It was great. We took lawn chairs and sat across from the show. The breeze was nice and kept the bugs and heat at bay. Bubby loved watching the fireworks but didn't dig the noise so he kept his hands over his ears while we watched. As for T-Bone, he didn't like anything about it. So he dealt with it the T-Bone way; taking a nap on Daddy's chest. Of course Daddy kept his hand on the open ear to help block out the noise. I tell you that T-Bone can take a nap anywhere as long as he is laying on you! He napped at the Ball game on Mothers Day!
On the 4th we cooked out and had some BBQ chicken on the grill and I made some red beans and rice in the crock pot. Yum. We also took a trip into the what used to be country (Lavon) and picked up some sparklers for I and the boys and some black cats for Daddy. Hey you gotta have some kind of bang on the 4th right? So we did some in the backyard before bath and bedtime.
Ahhh, brings back the memories of my dad lighting some in our old backyard when I was young. I can remember feeling both fascinated and terrified at the same time. No wait, I still feel that way come to think about it ") I'll pass on the black cats and bottle rockets. I'm more of a sparkler girl myself.
We still had some fireworks left over on Saturday so we did it again after dinner. Bubby asked if we could do it again tonight like it has become part of our nighttime routine or something.
So tonight we are planning some rib eyes on the grill and maybe a few beers if Daddy's up to it to say goodbye to the long weekend.
This Thursday is Bubby's 4th Birthday! Yikes, 4! I can not believe it. It seems like yesterday when we brought this tiny baby home with us. We are planning a pool party this year at Surf and Swim on Friday. I guess we have to say Bye to Chuck E Cheese sooner of later.
