Independence Day

This was a very special weekend because for the first time in 3 years, Chris wasn’t out of the country on the 4th of July. We had a fun filled weekend with family, friends, swimming, fireworks and a parade.

Uncle JJ later put on his annual fireworks show for the neighborhood and wowed everyone. By the end of the weekend we were exhausted but it was a blast. Thanks Mamaw & Papaw for hosting a fun day at the pool and cookout at your home!

      Thanks Harriet. It was fine after she explained who she was. I probably sounded funny when I kept saying who are you? what is stray connection? I was happy to do it though and you ARE an amazing pet owner! It was fun to see Allie play with Gracie the other night. We should have them see each other more often.
