That being said, we managed to have a busy day. We spent a little time at the zoo. Ellie showed her red, white and blue spirit. (Oh, and those would be matching monkey tattoos on her knees.)
We walked on a log. My husband is HOT!
We grilled. Because, seriously, it is unamerican not to eat a hamburger on July 4th.
We played dollies,
and then we did venture out to see some fireworks. Look at the gorgeous sunset we got right at the lake!
We got a great family shot. This was day 5 of the "Cough of the Century" and I was exhausted. I hadn't slept more than an hour at a time for 5 nights. More on that later.
We ran from the scary Daddy monster.
We got a great shot of Sascha's baby blues,
we caught our first ever lightening bug,
All in all, not a bad day.
As for my cough. I think I have turned a corner. This cold, or whatever it is, has totally kicked my butt. I managed to get about 6 hours of sleep last night and am feeling better. I haven't exercised in a week people, and that is not good. I did get a smallish walk in this evening and feel much better. No running yet, but all in due time. I love that fact that I am finally at the point where if I don't move, I hate the way I feel. Yea!
