4th fun

We are not 4th people. We never have been. I mean, we are patriotic to a degree, GO AMERICA! but for some reason, have never really gone big for the fourth. This year was no exception.

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 cuddled,

We ran from the scary Daddy monster.

We got a great shot of Sascha's baby blues,

we caught our first ever lightening bug,
made funny faces for Sascha,

and finally caught the fireworks!

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!

I love this photo essay!
And it's true... that picture of your husband ( who's hot!)holding that dolly makes him infinitely hotter!

Hope you are doing well!

Looks like a fun day! Next year you should make the trek out here to hang out on our block for the 4th. (Added bonus: we could work on the whole 'arranged marriage' thing.)
