We didn't party too hardy for the Fourth this year: just a little laid back backyard fun with our family. There wasn't much poolside fun because it poured buckets (3+ inches of rainfall before 8:30 a.m., blasting the 120-year-old record rainfall for our area) and the air was unseasonably cool. I won't say we didn't try. It was just too cold! There was watermelon and hamburgers for the having, and some firecrackers and bottle rockets. Hawk hid his face in our shoulders all evening. I don't think he liked all the explosions. Seth had more fun catching frogs than anything else.
That was our holiday. Nothing elaborate. Just humble, thankful, quiet... and a little muddy. Just the way I like it! How did you celebrate the Fourth?
