We had a fun 4th of July weekend. It was busy, HOT, and the lake was nearly closed from the presence of toxic algae, but it was still better than last year.
Friday afternoon Rob returned from Vegas and we picked him up at the airport. Friday evening we just hung around the house. Saturday we met Lynn and Lauren for lunch and headed to the James' pool party.
That evening Drew and Lynn came over and we played in the yard, went to the pool, and cooked out.
Sunday morning we got up and headed to the lake, leaving Avery with Mimi. The presence of toxic blue green algae prevented us from getting in the water and it was HOT. We made the best of it, though, and the fireworks show was great!
We picked Avery up Monday and all of us enjoyed long naps that afternoon. That evening we went out to eat and picked up some little fireworks for
We got tanks, a train, an egg-laying hen (which didn't lay eggs), smoke bombs, etc.
Despite her apparent zeal in this picture, she was ambivalent about the fireworks but enjoyed playing outside nonetheless.
