Slow Fourth


After more than month of travel and company - we set aside the 4th weekend to be slow and home and just together as a family. I sat on the couch a lot!!!!

Before our day got too hot, I wanted to start with a festive picnic! Also love this: hydrangeas and blueberries were from our yard!




















After breakfast, a huge Lego session commenced!



























The late afternoon consisted of reading, taking a nap and an easy dinner followed up by a storm that cooled the air and calmed the bugs. With that combo, I dashed outside to enjoy my front porch! And, {gasp} I actually had to put on a light sweater! My sweets played happily around me and it was just dreamy. Back inside, more reading, Boggle and such continued the fun until we did sparklers after dark! It was a great day!!!
