This year our 4th of July was very low-key was was a much needed break from our busy summer schedules. Now, don’t get me wrong, I have loved every minute that we have been swimming, at the beach, going to the park, singing and dancing at VBS, etc. but sometimes I just like to be at home with my sweet family. No agenda. No plan. Just us. It was pure bliss!
The morning started with Zumba with my family. However, on the way home Aunt Martha and I stopped and picked up biscuits at Bojangles which probably defeated the workout, but oh well! LOL
After breakfast the girls and I piddled around the house while Mickey headed to the golf course to hit a few range balls with his new club that he got for Father’s Day.
Late in the afternoon we headed to swim. The pool is usually rockin’ on the 4th of July with lots of family and friends, but this year it was just the 4 of us. Again, I love our family and friends, but I must admit it was very nice to have some quality time with our little family unit. Mickey has been working crazy hours this summer so to have the entire day with him was just absolutely wonderful!
Of course, we kept with our yearly tradition and went to Jahpa’s to shoot fireworks once the sun went down. We had a lot of fun and the “show” went off without a hitch. Some of our other neighbors were shooting fireworks too so that made the night even more exciting! I took a delicious peanut butter pie that I have named my “Pinterest Pie” and after the fireworks we all enjoyed dessert before heading home.
The 4th of July has always been a special day because it represents not only freedom, but also family and friends, and this year was no different!
