Face Painting & Fireworks

 Monday was the 4th of July.  We spent the majority of the day at home.  Mike mowed the lawn and washed his truck.  I found my spot on the deck with my kindle and working on my summer tan lines.  It was a glorious day.  However in the evening we headed out to Overisel have pizza with friends and then headed over to the community fireworks celebration.  There were hayrides, wheelbarrow baseball, football games, sparklers, face painting, and much more.  We didn't do everything but did our fair share.  The boys first headed to the face painting.  Three of the boys got red, white and blue flags that looked more like dutch flags than USA flags but they loved it just the same.  After the face painting we stood in line for a hayride...we were lucky we got on the last one. Then we headed back to our seats and waited for the fireworks to began.

It was a great day all in all despite the fact that we didn't get home until after 12:30, but the boys did sleep in Tuesday morning so it was all worth it.  PLUS  I got to meet up with a high school friend I hadn't seen since high school.   I hope everyone else had a great holiday, now I need to start thinking about getting the camping trailer packed as we will soon be camping.  I love summer.
