Happy 4th of July


We celebrated 4th of July this past Saturday by sleeping late, cleaning house (Callie), watching Hereos (Paul), and then getting together with friends for a grill-out and fireworks.  We had unusually cool weather for July 4th, 65-68 degrees and pouring down rain for about 8 hours straight.

On Saturday evening we got together with all of our Great Oaks “family” and had a grill-out upstairs at Jim and Ember’s.  We ate and visited (and mostly watched the kids play).  When all of us get together there are 8 adults and 5 kids under the age of four.  Needless to say, it was cheap entertainment.

Then, Jim, Paul, and I took two of the kids to go see fireworks in Chillicothe, about 15 minutes away.  We had a good time, despite the cold weather and raindrops…
