Johanna -4th of July
Sarah and Andrew came by early in the day and took Andy & Haley with them to the Civic Green park to play in the water. That was so great! We finished our work while they were gone. Then Sarah, Haley, and I went shopping. Mostly we just did the “wander” thing. We found some great deals on shoes ($2 snow boots, $1 flip flops) and picked up a few necessities. Then we headed back home to EAT (thanks, Tom, for all the hard work over the grill!). Cynthia & Alex brought a great selection of soda, and Mom’s famous baked beans (YUM!). Sarah & Andrew favored us with some melon and guacamole (what is the fourth without watermelon??). The kids had fun with bubbles and the mini trampoline. Then we all headed out to the park for a kickball game. I love that we live on the park. Almost every day I think how lucky we are and how I just love my home.
The night concluded with fireworks, courtesy of Highlands Ranch. The kids thought they were pretty exciting. Tom decided that we really need to be closer to the action next year – the “booms” just weren’t loud enough for him from where we were sitting!! All in all a pleasant day. Thanks to Sarah for suggesting we get together!!
