happy fourth recap
July 9, 2013 § Leave a comment
Here’s how our 4th of July long weekend went. Eat lots of food (more ice cream than I would in an entire year), try to stay cool in the heat (but end up sweating way more than one should), run in the sun (which leads to even more sweating), sit, relax and enjoy the company of family.
This year’s festivities were like most years past with a 5K fun run, fireworks, a book sale and parade. The only thing we missed out on were our outdoor activities, it rained every day. No badminton and no ladder ball, the grass too soggy to even step out in the backyard. We did squeeze in a bocce match and a single game of croquet. But mainly we sat and talked, read the newspaper, sipped coffees, sometimes cappuccinos, played cards and just enjoyed being home in Vermont, together, where life is a little bit slower and quieter. I think the photos sum it up quite nicely.
Oh, and when we could, we tried to eat things that were red, white and blue. We were pretty proud when we discovered vanilla ice cream with blueberries and strawberries accomplished this quite beautifully.
