happy 4th of july

The girls are wearing the pillowcase dresses that daddy made for them.
 James cooked hot dogs on the grill in hot, sunny weather
on our balcony.

Not 10 minutes after the dogs were done and he started
cooking the hamburgers,
we were hit with a huge
downfall of hurricane type rain!

James cooked the rest of our meal indoors.

Our day was low-key and very relaxed.
We were all moving slowly today.
Naomi didn't wake up this morning
until 10:00 and had gone
to bed with a low-grade fever, so we
didn't attend church this morning.
Allergies are annoying us from all the rain
so our heads and sinuses have been achy.

However, we thoroughly enjoyed our day together
and the fireworks were great!
We just walked to the 5th floor of our building
and watched them easily from there.
We had a record this year,
no one was scared of the fireworks!!

Happy 4th of July!
