A Fun Fourth

Our Fourth of July was hot and sparkly, full of Aaron smiles and excitement, mixed in with too much quietness for my liking.  The quietness comes from not having our kids or extended family nearby.  I don’t even really like holidays for that reason, but I choose to count my blessings and enjoy our special Aaron times.

On Friday, Gary and I took Aaron out to eat at Cracker Barrel.  He loves that restaurant!  He left with a full stomach and a chocolate bar from the gift store, and ended up with a sack full of sparklers and other smoky, loud Fourth of July fun that we chose in the big tent a couple miles from home.

I’ll just leave you with pictures of our weekend, including a perfect front-row view of our town’s fireworks and the gorgeous full moon on Saturday night.   And lest I forget, we rescued a turtle that Gary found in our flower bed.  😊













And my favorite picture of all says it all!

I'm Patty and I write about our adult son who has Epilepsy and Autism, who still lives with my husband and me, and who is a package full of many surprises and joys and challenges and TALK! Lots of talking, which creates laughter and some other reactions as well. I also write about how God shows Himself to me in everyday life.

  1. I love the look in his eyes when he watches the sparkler. Sometimes we forget the joy of the simple things in life like a sparkler. Thanks for sharing the pictures, Patty, and for your tender heart. I’m praying for you and your family.

  3. It looks as if Aaron still had a good time! Our large fireworks displays were all cancelled, but right around 9:15 in the evening, many small municipalities set them off and it was really fun to see. I guess they figured that if they didn’t advertise it, people wouldn’t gather in large groups to watch. But almost everyone could see something from their own front yard!
