Our Independence Day was just wonderful. It was simple, quiet and so, so happy and exactly what we needed. You know how somedays you just realize how badly you need a small break from reality? I think Craig and I were both definitely at that point, so having a day dedicated to fun and family was exactly what we both longed for.
We spent the morning at home not doing much special. Then we headed over to my families house where we had a barbecue and swam for several hours (i think it should be our new family rule that we must swim on 4th of july), and caught up with my mom and sister who had spent the last few days in Disney World with some friends – lucky.
Next, we packed up our van and drove up to Craig’s parents cabin up north. There, we had dinner, went 4-wheeling (my favorite), spent time outside, watched the fireworks from up in the mountain which was really neat, then we spent the night! The next morning we had a delicious breakfast, did some more 4-wheeling (still my favorite), then went back home.
It was just the best. It was revitalizing and exciting and best of all, a bunch of time with my sweet family and our extended families.
I hope you all had a wonderful Fourth of July, as well!! You all deserve it.
