What is your most memorable 4th of July?
Sparkle Wednesday | July 5, 2023
Happy Independence Day! I'm writing this on July 4th. Here in Minneapolis, the weather is hot and sticky, with a chance of thunderstorms. It's not the perfect day for picnicking. But that's okay with me.
David and I got home from our camping trip yesterday, and there's plenty to do. Between doing the many loads of laundry (as my dad would have put it, "it looks like you're doing laundry for a battleship"), grocery shopping, and getting set to return to work, there's not much time for fireworks. There's no need to get out your tiny violin, we had a fantastic trip, and I feel refreshed!
Over the years, we've had many fun or just-plain memorable “4ths” with the boys. What stands out? Maybe the 4th when the boys played “rounders” at Fort Snelling, or the time we got caught in a torrential downpour at Bush Lake, or perhaps it was the time when we got stuck in a HUGE traffic jam leaving the fireworks, and Leo was desperately (hiking through the desert level) thirsty? We had no water or anything to drink in the car. There's nothing like the wrath of a thirsty three-year-old to put you in a good mood. Lol.
What about you? What's your most memorable 4th of July?
