The Fourth

I went to Connecticut for the Fourth.  I took my grandson.  We went out with my sister-in-law Jeannie and our niece Emily for dinner at Ruby Tuesday.  Dane was most patient.  He wrote a thank-you note to our waitress.  I thought it was sweet.

We walked in the morning and hung around the house for the rainy afternoon.  Dane had a good time with Lego collection Jeannie remembered she had stored in her attic.


At five o'clock, the sun broke through--just in time for my nephew's party.
 It was a fun time.  Great food, lawn games, music, a miniature horse,


and at dark--spectacular fireworks right there in the yard.   I didn't get good pictures--too busy watching the show.    It was a good time.

Looks like you and Dane had a ball. What a cute miniature pony! We get Sam tomorrow for a week.

Sometimes it is better to just put the camera down and enjoy the moment! Sounds like you had one of those times!

What a neat and fun time you had and you know that waitress has that note pinned proudly to her refrigerator. Cool move Dane.

I'm the picture taker in the family... tons of pics... but I'm not in them. Of course this is what I'd planned. Lately however, I too have left the camera at home and am into 'enjoying the moments'... Sounds like you had a great day with family! and cute pony!

Sounds like a great 4th. How nice that it stopped raining just in time for the party.

Independence day around here was dedicated to my recovery from my hip surgery so we didn't see any fireworks but we certainly heard some big boomers. Looks like your group had a great time.

Sounds like a wonderful holiday to me! What a nice young man to write a thank you note to the waitress... I bet it is the only one she has ever received from a customer and just made her day!

Looks like you had a fabulous fourth! Yae! Lego blocks have really evolved. I was stunned to see my granddaughter's elaborate sets.
