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!
