No parade or fireworks for us this year. They were cancelled in our town due to storm damage. Fine by me. 100+ temps aren't really parade or firework weather. I'm just happy sitting in my air conditioned bubble, relieved and grateful that our power kicked on relatively soon and that we haven't any trees through our roof or on top of our car.
The kids seem to be in Summer hibernation mode today. Maybe they're pooped for our short trip out of dodge and our makeshift holiday celebrations. I was able to accomplish something today while they puttered that I haven't been able to get to for 7 months, the 2011 family photobook! I'm so excited. It's off and ordered and now I just have to do the Christmas one and I'll be all caught up.
I think I might reward myself with one of these watermelon mojitos. I made them the other day and they were delish!
